Market Position Statements and Housing

Briefing paper | December 2012

This Briefing Paper is the first of three produced by the Institute of Public Care (IPC) for the Housing Learning and Improvement Network to provide a concise overview of key issues highlighted in the joint IPC/ADASS/Housing LIN resource pack, 'Strategic Housing for Older People: Planning, designing and delivering housing that older people want'.

This paper is primarily aimed at local authority commissioners and has as its focus how to ensure the development of a diversity of supply of housing through the use of Market Position Statements (MPS). It considers:

  • The purpose and content of a MPS that focuses on the accommodation needs of older people.
  • How to develop a MPS that effectively involves and promotes a diverse quality market in housing suitable for older people.
