Housing Standards Review

The government have issued a written statement and a summary of responses to last year's Housing Standards Review and Technical Standards. Of particular note where the proposals on accessibility and space and overwhelming support for new dwellings to meet adaptability and accessibility requirements above Part M of the Building Regulations, including Lifetime Homes Standards and Wheelchair Housing design requirements.

The new Housing Standards Handbook from the NHF, is a one-stop resource for the housing sector now available to buy. Fully up to date following the government's Housing Standards Review, it sets out the new standards and regulations alongside additional good practice recommendations; providing a comprehensive framework for a project brief.
