25 Aug Conference on Ageing Population
BJC has organised and sponsored three conferences on the subject of ‘The Planning Implications of the Ageing Population’. The conferences have been held at the Winchester Guildhall (2013) and in Merton College, Oxford (2014) and in the Old Court House, Brighton (2016).
Not enough housing is being built specifically for the elderly to enable them to remain in their own homes as long as possible. Even the concept of “Lifetime Homes” is inadequate as it relies on retro fitting houses. This is the last thing that the elderly wants to address as they face declining health and mobility issues.
