HoME Coalition calls for stronger rules on accessibility for new homes

DT article HoME

The Daily Telegraph yesterday published an open letter from the HoME Coalition to the Secretary of State for Housing, Robert Jenrick MP, calling for tougher accessibility standards for new homes. This follows last week's deadline of the government's consultations on planning reforms and draft guidelines on a new model design code.

Championing the HAPPI design principles, the Housing LIN is a co-signatory of the Coalition's letter and joined forces urging the implementation of stronger standards to ensure new housing is accessible for older people and people with disabilities.
