Government has just published its housing standards technical review for consultation. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/slashing-red-tape-to-boost-british-housebuilding
It is disappointing in relation to housing for ageing in that it opts for optional improvements to new homes rather than universal age friendly standards.
Age UK’s preliminary views are 136 DCLG housing standards 12 09 14 HS
We urge people to comment on the consultation to argue for universal standards for all. Comments are requested by 7 November 2014
