Birds Hill Oxshott Estate Co.… Greater thought should be made with regard to providing housing for young people who have grown up in the Borough and wish to remain residents. As one of the most expensive areas to live in the country, younger people are increasingly being priced out of the Borough. The amount and proportion of shared ownership housing in developments should be increased. Developers should be obliged to make their
viability assessments of affordable housing available for public scrutiny – or to at least pay for their independent assessment for the Borough Council.

Deleted User Para 021 of the National Planning Practice Guidance (NPPG) confirms that the need to provide housing for older people is critical given the projected increase in the number of households aged 65 and over and which accounts for over half of new households. The ELP sets out the objectively assessed housing needs (OAN) for the Borough as being 9,480 units during the period 2015 - 2035; i.e. 474 dwellings per annum (dpa) and which amounts to an uplift of in the region of 250dpa on the target set out in the 2011 Core Strategy.

The Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA - 2016) confirms the population of older people
{65+) in the Borough as being approximately 26,000 in 2014, and this is expected to increase by
13,600 (52%) by 2032. The need for accommodation for older people is stated as being 1,336
dwellings (2015 - 2035, pp. 38 ELP), however this is not considered sufficient to meet the likely addition 10,000 new households over the age of 65, forming in the next 20 years, as indicated in the SHMA. The ELP needs to address this need.

It is clear that the Council faces great challenges going forward in terms of meeting its needs and in particular for older persons housing. In this context, the ELP will have to positively plan for housing and older persons housing to ensure an "effective" strategy based on appropriate evidence is delivered in accordance with the NPPF (para 182).
