Designing Housing to Meet the Needs of All

The Housing Agency has produced a roadmap which provides a pathway towards the information required to make informed decisions about better design, and to enable access, in a structured and easily understood way, to the standards and guidance required to ensure that every person has a home that is appropriate to their needs. It is underpinned by the existing regulatory environment, compliance with which is mandatory, as it applies.
