The G15 responds to accessibility consultation
- 1 December 2020
The G15 supports the Government’s intention to raise accessibility standards in new homes.
As London’s largest housing associations, we are experienced in delivering homes to the higher M4(2) standard, which the London Plan requires for 90% of new homes. We also support achieving enhanced accessibility by raising the national minimum standard, with means to address situations where this raised standard threatens viability or affordability.
This is in response to the Government’s ‘Raising accessibility standards for new homes’ consultation which considers how to raise accessibility standards, recognising the importance of suitable homes for older and disabled people.
