The Shire of Meekatharra is reviewing and updating the Disability Access and Inclusion Plan. The Disability Services Act 1993 requires all local government and selected State Government agencies to develop a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP).

These plans benefit people with disability, the elderly, young parents and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
