Tenure

Tenure

The longer people can stay in their community, the greater the bonds of trust and local social connection.

From principle to strategies

  • Ensure that the design and mix of dwellings can meet residents’ current and anticipated needs over time.

  • Create spaces that enable programming for diverse age groups so tenants have the option to remain in the same building over the long term.

  • Provide legal frameworks that allow tenants to stay in their home for many years—i.e. provide security of tenure.
