Local shops are essential to the Preferred Strategy for older people in allowing them continued independence. This is our experience in Winchelsea and we feel it is worth mentioning.

Core Strategy Consultation on Strategy Directions 2008

Representation ID: 19766

Received: 30/01/2009

Respondent: East Sussex County Council

Representation:

Whilst it is acknowledged that this consultation document is strategic in nature and greater detail will be provided in subsequent DPDs and SPDs, it is important the housing needs of older people and other vulnerable groups including those with learning disabilities are recognised in the core strategy.

Additional comments are as follows

Para 10.40 (page 94) replace elderly with older people

Para 10.61 (page 100) whilst it is understood that the majority of older people live in Bexhill, over 40% of older people live in the rural areas. The core strategy should acknowledge this and the challenges it presents in terms of meeting their needs.

Para 10.65 (page 100) it should be noted that the Housing and Support Strategy covers the period 2007 - 2027 and the Joint Older People's Commissioning Strategy was published in 2007.
