Solutions to an age old problem in London

10 Sep 2019
The number of people aged 65 and over in London is expected to increase by 71% between 2019 and 2044, equivalent to 786,600 people. This includes an additional 321,000 people aged 85 and over, almost double the current number (i.e. an increase of 104%). By comparison, the overall population is anticipated to increase by 20% during this period. Consequently, there is an urgent need to provide more specialist accommodation for older people.
This Insight Focus follows on from Lichfields’ national research, Solutions to an age old problem, in exploring the planning issues and the policy context for older people’s housing in London.
