Improved accessibility at the Bathurst Seymour Centre

MEDIA RELEASE 16 May 2017

 

The Bathurst Seymour Centre recently had a ramp installed with funding from Council’s Small Business Access Improvement Grants.

The centre caters for older people who are frail and people with a disability. The centre had a ramp installed to the rear of the building with handrails to improve access, handrails in the amenities block and a visibility strip from the kitchen to the hallway. The total cost of the project was $4268.

Mayor Graeme Hanger OAM said this was a great outcome for the people who use the centre.

“I’m pleased that Council has contributed to this project and has helped make the centre more safe and usable for the people and their carers who visit and use the premises on regular basis,” he said.

The Small Business Access Improvement Grants assists small businesses to improve access to their business for people with a disability. The grants fund 50% of the project , up to a maximum of $5,000 of the project costs and are assessed by the Bathurst Regional Access Committee who make recommendations to Council.
