Cost of living support
Colchester Borough Council is providing support for residents facing the cost of living crisis.
This consultation considers how to raise accessibility standards, recognising the importance of suitable homes for older and disabled people. In particular, it considers how the existing optional accessible and adaptable standard for homes and the wheelchair user standard are used and whether government should mandate a higher standard or reconsider the way the existing optional standards are used.
This consultation from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government ran from 8 September until 1 December 2020
