Hearing loops/ Hearing Augmentation 

The Disability (Access to Premises – Buildings) Standards 2010 under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 provides protection for everyone in Australian against discrimination based on disability.

A key requirement under these standards is that a hearing augmentation system be provided in buildings where people assemble for:

  • civic, theatrical, social, political or religious purposes; or
  • educational purposes in a school, early childhood centre, preschool, etc; or
  • entertainment, recreational or sporting purposes; or
  • transit purposes.

Council have the following facilities with a built-in Hearing Loop/ Hearing Augmentation System: Eastbank, Council Office and Shepparton Senior Citizens. 

Council also have a portable hearing loop system when required at other facilities. Please contact Council's Access and Inclusion Officer if you require this at your next Council event or facility.
