Seniors Living


gelder has been involved in Seniors Living since the mid 1990s. The original State Environment Planning Policy (SEPP5) was launched in 1982. The current State Environment Planning Policy housing for seniors or people with a disability (2004 SEPP Amendment No. 2) commenced in October 2007.

gelder has worked on numerous seniors housing projects and have successfully integrated development into the existing suburban fabric. The SEPP outlines standards acceptable to both people with a disability and seniors – these standards encompass accessibility of car parking, bathrooms, kitchen and laundry design. The accessibility of these developments is the key ongoing success.
