Petition for tiny home recognition

Tiny homes are energy efficient, often very sustainable, affordable and a critical piece of the puzzle to help ease the nationwide housing crisis. Although tiny houses on foundations can often be permitted as a secondary dwelling, tiny houses on wheels are often not recognised and therefore not able to be lived in full time. We are advocating for policy change.

Please spare a few seconds to sign the petition to recognise all kinds of tiny houses as a valid housing option.
