Response by ANUHD to the ABCB Options paper
We conclude that:
“The argument for mandating at the LHDG gold level (Option 3) is compelling. Given the decade of delay, the wide impact that accessibility in housing has on society, and the ageing of Australia, the NCC must go beyond the minimal approach that the housing industry might expect. It must adopt COAG’s commitment to social inclusion and contemporary world-class urban design and architecture and implement Option 3“
