The Livable Housing Design quality mark is a nationally agreed seal of approval that is based on a set of simple, smart design standards that make it safe and easy for people to continue living in their own homes as their needs change- from starting a family to getting older. Continuing growth in apartment and retirement living markets is likely to increase demand for Livable Housing Australia (LHA) accreditation. See Big industry players back LHA Guidelines.
Through adopting the LHA Guidelines, dwellings will be:
• easier to enter
• safer to move in and around
• more capable of easy and cost-effective adaptation
• designed to better anticipate and respond to the changing needs and abilities of the people who live in the home
