The NSW Government asked Landcom to enable or deliver 20,000 home sites in the four years to 31 March 2019. We achieved this target, delivering 20,009 sites over this period.
What is livable housing?
Livable housing refers to housing that adheres to set of universal design guidelines that apply to apartments and homes alike.
In 2009, Landcom developed universal housing guidelines, which were then used to develop the Livable Housing Guide . The Livable Housing Guide is now in its fourth edition and is accepted as the industry standard across Australia.
We advocate for the ‘Silver performance level’ of housing design. These incorporates seven core design elements that focus on the key structural and spatial elements, which are critical to ensure future flexibility and adaptability of the home.
Incorporating these features help to avoid more costly home modifications, if required, at a later date.
