2018-11 AAG and ANUHD Accessible Housing submissions
ABCB Accessible Housing Options Paper
In September 2018, the Australian Building Code Board’s (ABCB's) Accessible Housing Options Paper was released for public consultation. The Options Paper provides a preliminary menu of options and costings on the possible inclusion of a minimum accessibility standard for housing in the NCC.
The intention is to seek broader stakeholder input and refine the details of the objectives, options and terminology that will be considered in a formal Regulatory Impact Statement.
On 28 November 2018 AAG, in collaboration with the Housing and Built Environment Special Interest Group (HBESIG), submitted a response to this Options Paper.
AAG is a member of the Australian Network for Universal Housing Design (ANUHD) and also contributed to their submission in response to the ABCB Accessible Housing Options Paper.
AAG participation in public consultation forums
Many AAG members also participated in the public consultation forums held throughout Australia by the ABCB.
