Better Apartment Design Standards gazetted

The Better Apartment Design Standards were developed over a two-year period and is the outcome of close collaboration between Government and industry. The Property Council worked closely with the Government to ensure good design, quality, and affordability were equally achieved in the Standards.

Government is now preparing the accompanying Better Apartments Design Guidelines which will also be referenced in planning schemes.
