Housing for older people

Back to all Motions

2014 National Retired Members Conference
15 July 2014
Carried as Amended

Conference recognises present policies do not meet the needs of the increasing number of older people.

Conference instructs the National Retired Members’ Committee and calls upon the National Executive Council to make representations to the Government that: appropriate housing policies should be promoted that ensure the provision of adequate housing supply for older and disabled people, that such housing be exempt from “right to buy” legislation, close to community services and amenities needed by older people and, wherever possible, on “brown field” sites.
