“Towards an Inclusive Environment” – the Draft Waimakariri Accessibility Strategy

Accessibility is all about the removal of barriers that prevent people participating fully in personal and community life.

Designing with accessibility in mind benefits everyone, including families with young children, people with impairments and people with age related disability.
