Towards Lifetime Neighbourhoods:

LifeTimeNeighbourhoodsDCLG Publication on how planning should take account of the ageing population.
Lifetime neighbourhoods are those which offer everyone the bestpossible chance of health, wellbeing, and social, economic and civic engagement regardless of age. They provide the built environment, infrastructure, housing, services and shared social space that allow us to pursue our own ambitions for a high quality of life. They do not exclude us as we age, nor as we become frail or disabled.
Most features of lifetime neighbourhoods will benefit all generations. For example, limited public transport will impede access to amenities at all ages. However it may be particularly damaging to older people who are most reliant on it.
