Making headlines today, The Daily Telegraph has reported that all new homes must have ground level bathrooms and entry level access to comply with new voluntary building guidelines.

According to the paper, new homes must also be designed in such a way that they adequately accommodate prams and wheelchairs.

The new housing regulations are part of the federal government’s Universal Housing Design standards voluntary agreement with the building industry.

It is expected that up to 30,000 homes, or 20 per cent, will meet the new standards within three years.

The homes, both private and public housing, would be classified under a three-tier ratings system, depending on how well they complied for liveability.
