Housing for older people in Brighton

Housing for older people in Brighton
Hannah Midgley

If you are aged 60 and over, the council would like to hear from you regarding housing, to help them to plan for the type of homes we need to older people in our city. The feedback you share will help to change the city’s planning policies and the development of support and specialist housing.

Councillor John Allcock, chair of the council’s Housing & New Homes Committee, has said:

“We know that people make different decisions about where and how they live as they get older. We are keen to hear people’s views to help us work out what types of homes the city needs.

“Some will want to stay living in the same home, others will look to move to more manageable homes, and some will feel that housing specifically designed for older people will best suits their needs.

“We want to hear from people living in all types of accommodation. If you’ve recently moved, we’d also really like to hear about your reasons for moving.”

You can complete an online survey, the link is available here  or pick up a paper copy at any of the city libraries or can ask us to send you a copy by emailing housing.strategy@brighton-hove.gov.uk or calling us on 01273 293030.

There are also going to be a series of discussion groups for older people. Everyone who attends will get a £10 Love2shop voucher, as well as free tea and biscuits.

  • Wednesday 19 June in Hove for home owners
  • Friday 21 June in Brighton for home owners
  • Wednesday 26 June in Brighton for people who rent their homes

If you would  like to come along to one of the discussions, please email s.fox@housinglin.org.uk or call 07307 160780 to book your place.
