In August 2014 the NSW Disability Inclusion Act 2014 was passed. This Act requires Council to develop a Disability Inclusion Action Plan to help remove barriers and enable people with a disability to participate fully in their communities. This plan sets out a series of principles, strategies and actions that will guide Council operations over the next four years.

Council’s vision is for an inclusive, respectful and diverse community where all residents and visitors enjoy a safe and friendly environment. Council’s Disability Inclusion Action Plan will aim to provide better access to Council information, services and facilities ensuring people with disabilities can fully participate in their community.

This Disability Inclusion Action Plan was developed through community consultation and research process. A review of Council documents and Government policy took place and a staff surveyed was conducted.

Community consultation involved talking with numerous groups and directly 143 people over a 5 month period. During this time we held agency meetings, conducted surveys, held community conversations, kitchen table conversations and Dungog Shire Access committee, consisting of community members, played a role in the development of this Plan.


At the Extraordinary Meeting of Council on 28 June 2023, Council considered a report on the Draft Development Servicing Plans (DSP’s) that were recently exhibited by Hunter Water Corporation. Council resolved to place a copy of the report on Council’s website, which can be viewed below.
