Research commissioned to inform the draft Plan identified a total potential demand in London across all tenures for just over 4,000 specialist older persons units a year between 2017 and 2029.  Borough level benchmarks are provided in Table 4.4 of the draft London Plan and are designed to inform local-level assessments of specialist housing need, and the supporting text to Policy H15 states that boroughs should plan proactively to meet the identified need for older persons accommodation.
