Representation ID: 13164

OBJECT Taylor Wimpey represented by Boyer Planning (Mr. James Bailey)

Summary:

Whilst we support and recognise the importance of specialist housing and consider that the Council should support such developments, we do not consider that the Councils should adopt a policy in respect of this as it would be inflexible and too restrictive.

SUPPORT Dr Jonathan Tuppen

Summary:

A policy supporting the development of residential/nursing homes and specialist housing (sheltered, enhanced/sheltered and extra care) should be considered as described in Option HM3.

Representation ID: 11495

SUPPORT McCarthy & Stone Retirement Lifestyles Ltd. represented by The Planning Bureau Ltd (Miss Carla Fulgoni)

Summary:

We would like to highlight the advice provide in the Housing in Later Life: Planning Ahead for Specialist Housing for Older People toolkit. This encourages a joined up approach to planning, housing and social care policy.

Specialist accommodation for the elderly also usually provides an element of care and communal facilities at an additional cost to the developer. This requires a critical mass of residents in order to be feasible and small scale developments of specialist housing for the elderly could not be realistically asked to provide or maintain such facilities. It is therefore unlikely to expect the provision of specialist accommodation for the elderly to be met piecemeal in general needs housing developments.

OBJECT Taylor Wimpey represented by Boyer Planning (Kate Kerrigan)

Summary:

Representation ID: 9828

SUPPORT Earl Stonham Parish Council (Mrs Jennie Blackburn)

Summary:

the Parish Council strongly supports Options HM2 and HM3, for the reasons given by the Councils in the Document. The proportion of accessible and adaptable and wheelchair accessible dwellings should be set as high as possible, not only because of the aging population but also because most households at some time will have to accommodate occupiers or visitors with mobility issues, either through long term or short-term disability.

Representation ID: 9336

SUPPORT Nayland with Wissington Parish Council (Mrs D Hattrell)

Summary:

Nayland with Wissington Parish Council supports Policy Option HM3 - Residential and Nursing Homes & Specialist Housing. This supports development of nursing nd residential homes as well as specialist housing (sheltered, enhanced-sheltered and extra care). Such developments would be expected to be within or well connected to urban areas or larger villages on the basis that they are employment generating uses as well as housing.

Our local aging demographic would be well served by these options

Summary:

It would support needs of people no longer able to live independently.

Representation ID: 7570

COMMENT Mr Peter Powell

Summary:

This is in itself a good concept, perhaps though unattainable and unrealistic as a business proposition so perhaps something to encompass in large developments and subsidised out of 106 payments from smaller developments as council owned run facilities.

Representation ID: 7409

SUPPORT Ms Helen Davies

Summary:

The concept of a need for bungalows for retirement and disabled occupants is a good idea. As for what proportion is another matter as no proportion is given but it should equate to the projected increase over and above the proportion of affordable housing needed.

Representation ID: 6824

COMMENT mrs Netty Verkroost

Summary:

housing for the elderly need to be located in rural areas as well as urban areas so the elderly can continue to live within an established community and network of friends and family.

no comment

Representation ID: 6015

COMMENT Stowmarket Society (Mr Michael Smith)

Summary:

Whilst we support the thought behind this proposal, we are not convinced that it is practical. It will take years to allocate such sites and in the meantime needs will change. Some sites will come up which are not allocated and they will have to be judged on their merits. Other allocated sites may not be proceeded with. If you feel these difficulties are navigable, then we would support your endeavours.

SUPPORT Mr Graham Moxon

Summary:

Our desperate lack of provision for affordable quality care of our aging population and all those who need assisted living is shocking.

Representation ID: 5566

SUPPORT Mr & Mrs Martin Steele

Summary:

With an aging population and the local demographic residential and nursing homes should be supported.

Summary:

Agree

SUPPORT Suffolk Housing Society represented by Ingleton Wood LLP (Miss Nicol Perryman)

Summary:

Suffolk Housing Society welcome the inclusion of a policy supporting the development of specialist housing that is within or well connected to existing settlements.

The evidence base, in particular the SHMA, clearly indicates a current and future requirement for specialist housing for older people. It is therefore considered that a policy to address this need is required for the Plan to be in accordance with the NPPF.

Representation ID: 4334

COMMENT Mrs Louise Baldry

Summary:

Increase the provision of Bungalows and Accessible housing as we are living longer. The ageing population is looking for bungalows but they will also need more care so there will be a need to increase health and care infrastructure.

Representation ID: 3936

OBJECT Mr John Bellwood

Summary:

A policy just supporting the provision of care homes and other specialist housing is not strong enough. They have specific space and site requirements. Specific allocations should be made to ensure there is adequate provision.

More details about Rep ID: 3936

Representation ID: 3572

COMMENT Mr Richard Howard

Summary:

We support policies that increase the provision of Bungalows and Accessible housing , a factor apparently ignored is that we are living longer, and the number of retired people selling high value houses in city areas migrating to the area. The ageing population is looking for bungalows but they will also need more care so there will be a need to increase health and care infrastructure.
We support the retention of a 35% affordable housing target, but it should be more robustly enforced.

OBJECT Mrs Margaret Podd

Summary:

A policy just supporting the provision of care homes and other specialist housing is not strong enough. They have specific space and site requirements. Specific allocations should be made to ensure there is adequate provision.

SUPPORT Wortham & Burgate Parish Council (mrs Netty Verkroost)

Summary:

There is a lack of this type of accommodation in rural areas.

Representation ID: 2803

OBJECT Mr. Nick Miller for Sudbury Green Belt Group

Summary:

Option HM3 is preferable, and ensuring that developments meet all specialist housing needs, so that they are not located later, ad hoc by infilling land that would be suited to other uses, particularly not biodiversity or open space, nor by finding locations removed from ordinary housing.

Representation ID: 2533

SUPPORT Mr Terry Corner

Summary:

Prudent with an aging population

Representation ID: 2050

SUPPORT Mrs Kathie Guthrie

Summary:

I have said in the past this is an area we could and should support. We are best placed for it as it would also bring employment.

Representation ID: 1723

OBJECT Mr. A. Breen

Summary:

Residential and nursing homes should be built in any location and prove elderly residents with the widest range of choses for their final years. There should also be space on site for accommodation for carers as wages in this sector are particularly low and should include accommodation for carers' families as the presence of children is beneficial.

More details about Rep ID: 1723

Representation ID: 1256

SUPPORT mr chris g

Summary:

I support options HM2 and HM3
Surveys recently carried out in Wortham and Burgate have proved that there is a need for smaller, low cost, starter homes, and for affordable housing.
I also strongly support the idea that bungalows and smaller housing units should remain as such in perpetuity through the removal of Permitted Development Rights.

Representation ID: 1237

SUPPORT Raydon Parish Council (Mrs Jane Cryer)

Summary:

Again, this option is important in view of the anticipated growth in an older population.

Representation ID: 729

COMMENT Stephen Harrison

Summary:

With the predicted rise in elderly residents in the area was it short sighted of the council to remove so many properties from the sheltered housing stock to put into general needs.

SUPPORT Mr D C Warren

Summary:

It should meet likely local needs without the need for protracted travel
