A disproportionate burden is a discrepancy between:
- improvements actually made to buildings; and
- the amounts needed to finance the work.
To determine whether a burden can be considered disproportionate, the Minister will assess:
- the estimated cost of carrying out the work;
- the discriminatory effect that not carrying out the work may have on people with a disability;
- whether public funding can perhaps compensate for not carrying out the work;
- how useful these improvements will be for people with a disability;
- the lifespan of the buildings (to see whether the buildings will be demolished soon or whether they will continue to exist for some time).
