And another thing is that an increasing elderly population may need, to a greater or lesser extent, some support with their day to day living. Which says to me an increase in the need for care workers either within a care/nursing home or visiting people at home. These are low paid jobs are they not?

Correction to my post dated 2nd December.  The number of homes being built by Persimmon is 190 (the other 10 allocated for the site are, I believe, for self build).
