3: Issues

Would you like to comment on any of the issues or add new issues? Please note the name of the issue in your comments, or tell us what additional issues you think our plan should consider.

The Consultation is to be applauded in recognising that consideration should be given to the increasing needs for housing for an older population (issue 28) and that this needs to be planned for. This should be by way of a dedicated policy (rather than part of a housing mix policy) that supports the provision of housing for older people in accessible and sustainable locations and recognises the significant benefits that come with it , not least in addressing issues of loneliness, underoccupation, improvement in health and well being (with consequent reduction of burden on health and social services and supporting local and town centres.

It should also recognise that most older people want to continue to be able to live in locations with which they are familiar and that therefore preference should be given to development of sites in establised areas close to facilities as oppossed to large scale new developments with which they are not familiar

It should also be recognised that whilst there are benefits of adaptable housing, this does not deliver so many benefits as retirement housing schemes, not least considering issues of accessibility to services, loneliness and social isolation.

It follows that the well documented benefits on health and well being of purpose built and well located housing particularly for older people should also be recognised in the health and well being sections of the plan as well as the housing sections

Any affordable housing requirements arising from older persons housing should be carefully considered so as to not stifle deliverability, and based on the needs of the older population both in terms of overall need and tenure requirements
