Council consults on accommodation for older people and people with disabilities


Arun District Council has launched a public consultation to gather opinion on the provision of accommodation suitable for older people and people with disabilities.

The document can be found on the council website at http://arun.objective.co.uk/portal and is being consulted on from 23 May until 5.00pm on 20 June 2019

The key points to consider are:

  • Arun District has a higher proportion of residents in the over 55 age category compared to the national picture, this trend is expected to continue
  • At present only 7% of housing stock nationally is suitable
  • As an authority we wish to increase the amount coming through as a proportion of the housing stock
  • This aims to implement policies of the 2018 Arun Local Plan
  • The document is to be considered in the determination of planning applications.
