What if you discovered that old, nonsensical rules were preventing you from taking the best care of your parents, children and the environment. Would you want change? What if the solution was as easy as simply being able to install a second kitchen within a house which allowed your parents the independence they needed, but also kept them close so you could care for them or they could help care for their grandchildren. Is it worth changing? 

If buying a house was not challenging enough, to live affordably is a whole different ball game. Our cities and communities are increasingly under stress partly as a consequence of our own success, but mainly from the acceleration of demographic shifts and population growth. There are more of us with increasing needs that are placing increasing pressure on the limited resources we have. We need to think smarter and differently to meet these challenges.

Many of us have difficulties in finding affordable child care spaces, paying for quality aged care services and reducing energy bills. On a broader level, bureaucrats are searching for an equitable approach to delivering disability services while social planners are struggling to halt a mental health epidemic that is increasingly being linked to loneliness. [Now we need to deal with COVID19!].

We need to look at better solutions where we can pool our resources but also improve our quality of life. Allowing for more multigenerational homes where two kitchens exist that give that necessary independence, is as simple as it gets. Yet the rules prevent it and I am seeking your help to change this out of date and non sensical building and planning rule.
