I have never had a conflation before, but it is a trendy word to use, which is in the news a lot recently, so hear goes. My last two blogs have been about the planners restrictions on building houses and the desire of many older people to retire to a bungalow. Let’s try and conflate these two ideas. The planners want higher density housing to limit the need for building on green field sites, which directly conflicts with the demand from older people for more bungalows. Indeed the last thing the planners would want is lots of bungalows dotted all over the place😟 How about we turn the bungalow aspirations into large specially designed retirement flats, with level access throughout and lifts to all other floors. Then add a range of facilities on your doorstep, including a shop, a coffee bar and some activity spaces. That way you will have plenty to do, rather than being isolated in the country. Let’s call it a retirement village ! Better still locate it in the town where you already live. That way you will still be close to your family and friends and the planners will be able to keep their green belt. So everyone will be happy 😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄 and heave a lot more fun in retirement !
Conflation is not a bad idea !
