Livable Housing Design
Livable Housing Design emerged from the National Dialogue on Universal Housing Design led by the Hon Bill Shorten MP and Senator the Hon Jan McLucas.
The Livable Housing Design (LHD) Guidelines, negotiated through that National Dialogue, reflect a consensus document that has achieved industry, community and government endorsement.

The levels are framed around 16 livable housing design elements with seven core elements.
