Accessible Adelaide

As South Australia’s Capital City, Adelaide should be leading the way when it comes to accessibility and setting a benchmark for other cities to follow. By building a more inclusive and accessible city we can make Adelaide an even more desirable place to live, work and visit.

If elected to Adelaide City Council, I will advocate for:

– the integration of universal access principles into all city planning and design;

– extensive consultation with people with disabilities throughout the planning and development process;

– funding for a phone app to provide up to date information for people with disabilities on the accessibility of city shops, businesses and other venues; 

– the provision of fold-up ramps for city shops and businesses to encourage increased accessibility;

– incentives (including grants or discounted rates) for city businesses and shops to make their premises more accessible through renovations; 

– reduced speed limits and more zebra crossings to increase safe and accessible pathways, and;

– increased Braille signage across the city.
