Accessible Housing Options Paper now available!
The ABCB Accessible Housing Options Paper has been released in advance of the National Consultation Forums.
The ABCB’s Accessible Housing Options Paper has been 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.
Feedback on the Options Paper is invited until Friday 30 November 2018 and can be emailed to NCCawareness@abcb.gov.au. Please include ‘Accessible Housing’ in the subject line.
