Community Access Advisory Committee
Call for representatives
Council is inviting applications from community members to be representatives on its Community Access Advisory Committee.
Are you passionate about making Strathfield a place that everyone can easily and safely access and move around? Then we'd like to hear from you!
Strathfield Council is convening a new internal Community Access Committee which will advise the General Manager on universal issues of access and inclusion for our community. It will provide a forum for structured dialogue and discussion in regards to access and inclusion and will be an advisory sub-committee of the Council. Whilst the primary focus for the Committee will be on disability, good access for those with a disability will mean good access for all residents and visitors to our LGA.
Appointment to the Committee for Community Members will be for a period of twelve months. Subsequent terms may be sought by lodgement of Expression of Interest.
The Committee will meet 4 times each year from the commencement of 2019.
Applicants must meet at least one of the following selection criteria:
- Connection to the Strathfield LGA and experience with or interest in disability on a personal or professional level
- Experience and knowledge in providing strategic policy advice
- Experience in working actively within the community and willingness to actively contribute to the delivery of Council's strategies for social inclusion and access
- Demonstrated knowledge and understanding of the barriers to independent and equitable access for people with a disability.
To be considered for committee membership, please complete the membership form. The Terms of Reference for the Community Access Committee are available on this website and Council’s Community Access Plan 2015-2019 is also available.
