Epping Forest District Council


Impact of an Ageing Population on the Services of Epping Forest District Council
02.02.2016 - 02.01.2017 


This consultation is closed.

The results of the consultation are being reported to Cabinet in June 2016 and published on the Council's Website.



A series of informal consultation focus groups are being held with people aged 65-90's to ascertain what they believe will be their service needs and aspirations as they reach their very old age.


Why we Consulted

The study is included within one of the key Objectives of the Council's Corporate Plan. The main reason we are consulting is because we have a very large percentage of the population who will be in their 70's and 80's and beyond in 2025 and the information will inform other studies being undertaken, including changes to future housing provision for older people. A key part of the study also aims to identify likely impact on the range Councils services. Some of the information collected will also be relevant to statutory partners including West Essex Clinical Commissioning Group and Essex County Council and where relevant and appropriate, will be anonymouslyn shared with them.

The focus groups were undertaken up to the end of January 2016. We interviewed a range of groups from the Council's Lifewalks programme, New Horizons Scheme and a group organised by a local Councillor.
