Making our Communities Accessible

Everyone deserves access to community spaces and Council facilities. But right now, Council’s lack of action is locking vulnerable people out of our public spaces.

The Greens have a long track record of standing up for people with disabilities, older people, and marginalised communities, who are too often left behind by decision-makers.

On Council, we’ll stand up for public spaces that everyone can access safely and sustainably.

The Greens will:

  • Advocate for quality public transport and walkable communities, with footpaths suitable for wheelchairs, mobility scooters and strollers
  • Safe and well-connected cycleways and pedestrian crossings
  • Council policies to support LGBTQ+ people, people with disabilities, refugees, multicultural communities and older people
  • Provide free sanitary products to people in public spaces, ensuring more women and girls can access swimming pools and sporting facilities
  • Providing safe, clean and accessible infrastructure, including playgrounds, beaches, toilets and Council spaces
  • Create spaces for local artists to succeed, with subsidised access for locals
  • Support the establishment of dedicated youth services and youth facilities for local young people
