About the Guidelines

The LHD Guidelines provide useful information for consumers seeking to introduce livable design features into a new home and could be readily applied within an existing home during renovation or refurbishment. The Guidelines describe  livable design elements. Each element provides guidance on what performance is expected to achieve either silver, gold or platinum level accreditation. Elements 1–7 cover the core elements of the basic silver level accreditation.

Three levels of performance are detailed in the LHD Guidelines which can be downloaded from the LHA homepage. These voluntary performance levels can be applied to all new dwellings.
