Habinteg's Design Guide is the only practical manual available that covers all the requirements for Lifetime Homes and offers guidance on wheelchair housing design.
42% of social housing households have a member with a disability or limiting long-term illness (MORI/Housing Corporation 2001). Reduced physical ability increases with age and by 2031 it is estimated that 25% of the population will be over 65 (National Statistics Social Trends 2003).
Please note: The Habinteg Design Guide was published in 2003. For up to date design criteria on wheelchair standard properties, please refer to our Wheelchair housing design guide (published 2006) and for up to date design criteria on Lifetime Homes, please refer to our Lifetime Homes Design Guide (published 2011).
