Care & Social


The number of people aged over 65 in the UK is forecast to grow over the next decade from 11.7 million people to 14.3 million.  One in four of the UK population will therefore be over the age of 65 in the next 10 years.

As the sector continues to grow both in the private and public sector, the emergence of new models and facilities needed to support these developments will increase.

It is a sector that the planning system fails to adequately and effectively plan for and is therefore a challenging area where our experienced team excel in providing first class advice to deliver the results needed.

We have advised a wide range of clients including landowners, developers, providers and investors involved in this growing development sector in the promotion of new opportunities and management of assets and estates. We are well positioned to continue to advise our clients in emerging trends and the opportunities these will pose.

Some of our key skills in the Care, Assisted and Elderly Living sectors include:

  • Site appraisals and due diligence work
  • Promotion of land and representations to emerging policies
  • Addressing restrictive conditions and obligations
  • Overseeing and management of planning applications
