Accessibility Strategy across Northland needs your input
The Far North District Council, Kaipara District Council, Whangarei District Council and Northland Regional Council want to make Te Tai Tokerau (Northland) a better place to live, work and play in for everyone.
We need your help to make a plan that will make Te Tai Tokerau communities more accessible communities.
An accessible community (hapori) is where everyone:
- has rights
- is treated with dignity and respect,
- can access all places, activities, services and information easily and with dignity.
People who have access needs include:
- disabled people
- people with health conditions
- older adults/kuia and kaumatua
- children/tamariki and mokopuna
- people with language difficulties.
This survey is the first step in planning how to make Te Tai Tokerau more accessible to everyone.
Your answers will help your local council understand how well they are working for people with access needs.
We will use your answers to:
- understand what the important issues are
- decide what other questions we need to ask our community (hapori)
- help to write our plan.
A report about the survey feedback may be made available on the Office for Disability Issues and LGNZ (Local Government New Zealand) websites, but no one will be identified.
