The supply of appropriate housing for older people is woefully inadequate.

Grey Pride issues

  • A third of over 60s want to downsize.
  • 50% of the over 60s who wanted to move said they couldn’t because of a lack of supply of retirement property.
  • 60% of household growth through to 2033 will involve someone over 65.

What should happen

  • A national task force of developers, ministers and local government to produce a national strategy for increasing supply.
  • Create a level playing field for retirement housing developers.
  • Ensure all local authorities have a robust housing strategy for older people and act on it.
