Brisbane City Council will be offering reduced infrastructure fees to developers who build properties that meet Livable Housing Australia’s (LHA) design guidelines for accessibility.
This is great news for Brisbane residents wanting more accessible homes built and a real step in the right direction for councils across Australia to adopt. And although we haven’t seen this commitment from the Sunshine Coast Council (yet), our mayor Mark Jamieson has given his support to Project Silver.
Project Silver is an initiative from P2P Housing and Murphy Homes, which aims to get more accessible housing stock into the market, not only for home owners but also investors. Accessible homes widen the rental market for investors with potentially less vacancy and solid long term tenancies.
Livable Housing Australia (LHA) Silver Level homes have seven core elements, focusing on the key structural and spatial elements that ensure future flexibility and adaptability of your home. Building your home this way from the outset is cost effective and smart to address modifications that may be required over time. The small investment now could save you thousands in years to come.
P2P Housing and Murphy Homes are thrilled to have the backing and involvement from Stockland, one of Australia’s leading developers, to help roll out Project Silver. Stockland are showing a keen interest and commitment in delivering truly inclusive and accessible communities.
