The issue of an ageing population is also relevant in Clevedon, which will result in an increasing need to provide suitable accommodation for older people, within the period of the new Local Plan.

We note that a proposed action in the paper is to identify more sites for housing within the town. Given the issue of the ageing population in Clevedon, we would suggest that this town would be a good location to explore new models of supported living for older people, for example in senior cohousing or multigenerational communities. Therefore new sites for housing could be prioritised for these kinds of projects, for example by designating specific sites for CLH and/or self build housing. (see table in attached document)

 

Summary
Given issue of ageing population in Clevedon, would suggest that would be a good location to explore model of supported living for older people.
