Refining accessible housing provisions
We have been working with key stakeholders, other jurisdictions and the ABCB to refine the accessible housing provisions published in the draft NCC 2022.
Our focus to date has been on resolving implementation issues including exemptions and technical issues.
The proposed refinements will remove subjective elements from the draft exemptions and increase certainty – particularly for houses on sloping blocks.
Support for industry during transition
From 9 May 2022, the NCC 2022 preview will be released on the ABCB website.
Following publication, we will continue working with other jurisdictions and the ABCB to prepare guidance materials to help support industry, practitioners and the community interpret the new accessible housing requirements.
The ABCB will be hosting its annual national seminar series for Volumes One and Two and Volume Three across Australia in 2022.
