These days more of us are living longer, which is changing the structure of our society. In the UK as a whole there are more people over state pension age than children.
As we grow older, our needs change. City Hall is looking into the needs of older people in relation to key aspects of London life - particularly in terms of transport and surroundings like buildings, streets and green space. This is so that all needs can be taken into account in the new London Plan, which will set a framework for planning policy to meet London’s challenges until 2050.
We want to hear from Londoners of all ages. What aspects of your surroundings and transport would concern you more about living in London when you reach old age? Have your needs changed over time? At what point would you expect them to? What would you say are the best and worst things about London’s transport and built environment for older people?
