Further Planning Information

For anyone looking to develop specialist housing for older people, different models of provision can have very different planning connotations. Some models are not that different from standard housing; others are much more equivalent to traditional care homes. The Toolkit 'Housing in Later Life' (opens new window) includes a useful list of accommodation which falls within specialist housing for older people within Appendix A.

Further information is provided regarding the many different forms of housing for older people through the HLIN Factsheet No1 (opens new window)

Further information regarding developments and the planning issues surrounding specialist housing for older people can be found in the following resources:
