Towards Accessible Housing: A toolkit for planning policy

This toolkit by Habinteg and TCPA gathers together resources to support local authorities in implementing the new Housing Standards.

The contents are divided into 6 useful sections which are aimed at supporting the accessibility standards and thereby helping to ensure an increased supply of accessible homes: Category 2 and 3 housing in the language of the new standards, or M4 (2) and M4 (3) as they are termed in Building Regulations.

These new categories are broadly comparable with Lifetime Homes and the Wheelchair Housing Design Guide respectively.
