HAPPI 5 Report: Rental Housing for an Ageing Population

1 August 2019

“As 'Generation Rent' gets older and the chances of buying a home diminish, the number of retired people in the private rented sector (PRS) play seems set to change dramatically.”

What changes to housing for older people will be seen in the coming decades? How can the housing sector be future-proofed for the next generations as they grow older? What role will the PRS play?

The answers to these questions and more are explored in the most recent report published by the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Housing and Care for Older People. ‘Rental Housing for an Ageing Population’ is the latest in a series of inquiry reports focused on Housing for an Ageing Population (HAPPI).

In the creation of this inquiry, Pozzoni’s expertise was called upon; Nigel Saunders was pleased to be involved as a contributor to this report:

“The projected growth in demand for rental homes for our ageing population is providing exciting, emerging opportunities for designers, developers, operators and financial institutions alike.”

My involvement outlined several areas of Pozzoni’s experience across the sector, including the emergence of rental as a conscious lifestyle choice, within communities providing flexibility and freedom, some in our suburbs, others in our town and city centres.”
