The number and proportion of the elderly in our population is increasing and is expected to continue to do so for the foreseeable future. There is a need for housing designed to meet the specific needs of this part of the population. One such form of housing is Category II Sheltered Housing. This research focuses on the transport characteristics of the residents of this form of housing. It looks at the trip generation of sheltered housing developments and the factors that may or my not influence this, such as the size of the apartments, the locational characteristics of the sites and car ownership in the area. It also looks at the car ownership, car parking and cycle parking requirements, taking into account the latest guidance from central government, and the other modes of travel used by the residents, their visitors and the house managers. The study looks at the other characteristics of the residents of the developments. One such characteristics in the influencing car ownership and use is likely to be the age of the residents, and others could include sex of residents. The study uses data collected in a number of ways, including questionnaire surveys, telephone surveys and traffic counts.
