Bell Phillips Greenwich Bungalow

The English Housing Survey reveals that 9% of dwellings are bungalows - that's 2 million properties. However, since the 1980s, the development of new bungalows has been on the decline hovering around 2% of all dwellings that are given planning permission and there is growing undersupply. Furthermore, a recent Knight Frank survey (opens new window) reveals that over 60% of older people would prefer to move into a bungalow in later life. Addressing this mismatch is a challenge for those planning, designing and developing housing for an ageing population.
