Off the back of our successful Building Better Homes campaign in 2021, this year will see many new homes around the country built to minimum accessibility standards. This means new homes will include features such as increased door widths and a no-step entrance, making a significant difference to the millions of Australians with mobility issues.
The Building Better Homes campaign, to have these standards included in the National Construction Code, was successful in Victoria, Queensland, ACT, NT and Tasmania.
We will be working with governments and industry in these states to educate the community on the standards as they are bought into legislation.
We will continue to try to get the governments of NSW, Western Australia and South Australia on board.
