Consider the universal design principles (see The Building) when placing the house, in particular whether or not level access can be achieved from the street.
This depends on site topography, and street level relative to the finished floor level of the house. Level access from a car park to the door should be provided wherever possible. If it is not possible, the design should allow for this to be achieved at a later date.
All of the elements above must be considered together when siting the house. Further detail on each element is provided in subsequent sections.
