On 29 November 2016, the Senate referred the following matter to the Senate Community Affairs References Committee for Inquiry and report:
The delivery of outcomes under the National Disability Strategy 2010–2020 to build inclusive and accessible communities.
The Committee released their Inquiry report on 29 November 2017. The Committee’s report examines the accessibility and inclusiveness of the Australian community for people with disability.
It covers a number of themes that relate to the original Strategy’s first outcome area, ‘Inclusive and accessible communities’, including the planning, design, management and regulation of the built and natural environment; transport services and infrastructure; and communication and information systems, including barriers to progress or innovation in these areas. Consideration was given to the effect of restricted access for people with disability on inclusion and participation in all aspects of life.
