Survey – standards for accessible housing

Survey - standards for accessible housing
Posted on Tue 18 Aug 2020

The Melbourne Disability Institute urgently needs your assistance! The Australian Government is currently considering introducing legislation that will require all new housing to be accessible. This is your chance to chance to help change government policy by completing the online survey by 26 August.

The survey is anonymous, and your responses will be kept confidential. Any information that you share will not be attributed to you personally. The survey should be completed only if you are an adult with a physical disability, or if you are assisting an adult with a physical disability to complete it. 

The survey is in response to The Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) who has recently issued a Consultation Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) in relation to accessible housing, based on a cost-benefit analysis undertaken by the Centre for International Economics (CIE). 

Please complete this survey by 26 August.
