The Australian Network for Universal Housing Design (ANUHD) is a national network of housing industry bodies, housing professionals, government professionals, designers, builders, researchers and home occupants who believe that the homes we build for today’s Australia should be fit for all of tomorrow’s Australians.
We call for minimum access features to be included in the Building Code of Australia for all new and extensively modified housing. We consider Livable Housing Design’s Gold Level to be the minimum.
Universal design is the design of products, services and environments to be useable by everyone regardless of age or ability.
This proposal is for mandated accessibility in all new housing construction.
