Consultation closed 31st January 2007
The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) 1995 has recently been amended by the DDA 2005. This came into force in December 2006. A specific requirement of this duty is to prepare and publish a Disability Equality Scheme (DES).
The council has now prepared its DES following guidance issued under statutory code of practice of The Duty to Promote Disability Equality.
A consultation was held on the draft document published below which includes our action plan. The council sees the action plan as a flexible document which can be adapted easily to meet the changing needs and realistic expectations of people with disabilities, as they emerge over time.
You can find the action plan at appendix 3.
Results of the consultation will be published shortly.
