dc.description.abstractBaby Boomers constitute a significant percentage of the global population and as they enter retirement their lifestyle preferences are beginning to have substantial impacts on housing landscapes. This paper examines the emergence of Active Adult Lifestyle Communities (AALCs) drawing on literature from Australian, USA and New Zealand. AALCs are planned, designed, developed and marketed to a targeted and limited cohort (aged 55-74) and these, frequently gated, estates embody very particular and specific ideas of the good life. The aim of the paper is to investigate the planning impacts of these types of developments. The significance of the project lies primarily in providing critical insights into the planning and provision of housing for an aging population in doing advance knowledge of housing for older people.
