Lifetime Neighbourhoods

Authors: Mark Bevan and Karen Croucher
Published: 6th December 2011

Abstract

The Department for Communities and Local Government commissioned the Centre for Housing Policy at York University (United Kingdom) to produce an independent research report on Lifetime Neighbourhoods. The report brings together existing writings and research and practice examples of Lifetime Neighbourhoods ie places designed to be inclusive regardless of age or disability.

The report contributes to the coalition Government's commitment to help older people live independently and should help to prompt thinking around how for example ageing, design, housing, transport, participation and green spaces can be linked when creating Lifetime Neighbourhoods.
