Access and Inclusion

Disability Discrimination Action Plan

This Action Plan sets-out the City of Port Adelaide Enfield intentions to strengthen the inclusion and access for residents and visitors. While the plan has a particular focus on creating an environment where people living with disability can actively participate in mainstream community it also benefits those with other mobility restrictions.

Beach Access Mats

These mats enable access for wheelchair and gopher users, and people with prams.
