I recently appeared on “A Current Affair”, speaking in support of the installation of equipment that will ensure that a wheelchair-bound 92-year-old man has safe access to his apartment. Having watched, with interest, the discussion sparked by that story, this week I’m covering discrimination law and strata: does it apply in our residential buildings? If so, how? And perhaps more importantly: should it?

  1. Your advocacy on fully accessible strata living is heartening and your 3 points of recommendation at the end of this podcast v helpful. Of course the building code should direct that all accommodation – strata or otherwise – be fully accessible as retro-fitting simply puts off the cost and reduces available housing for anyone with access issues. We should all remember that it’s not just ‘disability’ that creates a problem adn that we are all vulnerable whether it be through pram use or sprained ankle!
