We would like to thank the community and key stakeholders for taking the time to provide feedback to Council on the Accessible Hotspots project.
We are now taking what we have heard and applying these learnings to our parks, reserves and playgrounds across the city.
"E āhei ana te hunga katoa... accessible for everyone..."
Kia hangaia he Tauranga e wātea ana ki ngā tāngata katoa.
āhei: Te āhei atu ki ngā wāhi whenua, ngā papa rēhia, ngā taunga tangata me ngā hangatanga katoa.
To create a Tauranga that is free of obstruction for all.
āhei: To have access to spaces, places, parks, reserves and buildings.
What is an accessible hotspot?
Small changes, big difference!
An accessible hotspot is a geographic area with a concentrated number of accessibility initiatives. This will make it an area that people can confidently go to with the knowledge it is an accessible place.
An accessible hotspot will result from coordinating city improvement projects to create large scale change, resulting in better experiences for disabled people in our city.
By pooling resources and creating hot spots in key areas, Council will be able to reduce challenges disabled people, tāngata whaikaha and people with access needs face, making it easier for everyone to play a full part in our city.
