The Study of Housing and Support Needs of Older People Accross Northamptonshire was commissioned by the Northamptonshire Councils and CCGs with the aim of
- Building and defending a robust evidence base/toolkit which covers demand and supply, affordability, tenure and type of housing/care across the County
- Highlighting emerging models of provision and comparing costs/benefits and affordability with present models as represented by both the existing stock and ongoing new provision by established providers
- Engaging with the range of stakeholders, including providers, planners and health, housing and social care teams across Northamptonshire to draw up appropriate development briefs/marketing information to ensure provision of a range of housing and care options across the County.
The project was intended to supplement the Northamptonshire County Council (NCC) Older Persons Accommodation Strategy and to form part of the evidence base for emerging Part II local plans in both North Northamptonshire and West Northamptonshire.
