Shire of Manjimup (Recognised)
Manjimup is in the lower South West of WA, approximately 307 kilometres south of Perth and 126 kilometres from the regional city of Bunbury. The town of Manjimup is a regional centre for the largest shire in the South West of Western Australia. The 2016 population of Manjimup town site is 4,349 people, while the broader area of Manjimup consists of 5,538 which accounts for nearly 60% of the total Shire population.
The Shire of Manjimup aims to ensure that the services it provides meet the needs and expectations of all, and that everyone has equal access to these services regardless of race, gender, beliefs, age, sexuality or disability.
The Shire recognises that the range of special needs across the community is very diverse and the task of meeting all needs is not a simple one. The Shire will, however, endeavour through consultation and involvement with the community to identify as many barriers to access and inclusion as possible and work towards achieving success in these areas in an ongoing and sustainable manner.
In order to guide these endeavours, Council has adopted an Access and Inclusion Plan. Further, the Access and Inclusion Advisory Committee, comprising Councillors, Shire officers, local agencies and community representatives, meets four times each year and advises Council on various matters
