ABCB forums to examine accessibility standards 

The Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) has commenced a new project to examine whether a minimum accessibility standard for housing should be included in the National Construction Code. Accessible housing is any housing that includes features to enable use by people either with a disability or transitioning through their life stages.

The ABCB will be holding morning consultation forums in each capital city, that will focus on its Accessible Housing Options Paper, which will be released in advance of the consultation forums.

All forums will be free to attend, although booking is essential.

Forum dates are to be confirmed, but at this stage are expected to be:

Canberra – Monday 15 October
Sydney -Tuesday 16 October
Perth – Friday 19 October
Adelaide – Thursday 25 October
Darwin – Friday 26 October
Brisbane – Tuesday 30 October
Melbourne – Wednesday 31 October
Hobart- Thursday 1 November
