Premises Access

In Australia, we have had legislation put in place since May 2011 requiring access for those with impairments into buildings where they shall enjoy not less than that same level of access provided to the unimpaired.

Any new or refurbishment of the whole or any part of a public accessed building must provide satisfactory access from public space (street) through the entry and to the new work area as well as throughout that new work area.

Exemptions are available where it can be established that the provision of such access would cause and these is evidence to support undue hardship for the stakeholder/s.
