Market Position Statement

Croydon’s Market Position Statement for Adult Social Care & Health (ASCH) services seeks to reflect the current picture of demand for care and support alongside the design, supply and utilisation of provision across the market to meet the changing needs of local people, and within the current financial challenges being experienced across health and social care. The Market Position Statement provides strategic information for providers to inform business and development plans within the context of meeting the Council’s strategic priorities, and to deliver service innovation and value for money.

We will continue to maintain an open dialogue with providers and people who use the services we commission through our provider forums and resident engagement groups, to ensure there is sufficient choice of provision to help people meet their aspirations and live as independently as possible. We will monitor the content of the Market Position Statement regularly and refresh when there are significant changes to report.

Population Projections

The GLA’s housing-led population projections

The housing-led projections reconcile future population growth with available housing supply by incorporating a housing supply trajectory. The GLA recommends the housing-led projections for most uses.

The housing-led projections include projections for London Boroughs and London wards (2022 boundaries). The release also includes components of change (births, deaths and migration data).

The most recent set of projections are the Interim 2021-based round (January 2023) which comprise three development scenarios: the Identified Capacity scenario, the Past Delivery scenario, and the Housing Targets scenario.

GLA Projections_Identified Capacity 10-year migration_Jan2023 – Croydon   (Recommended)
GLA Projections_Past Delivery 10-year migration_Jan2023 – Croydon
GLA Projections_Housing Targets 10-year migration_Jan2023 – Croydon


The GLA’s trend-based population projections

The trend-based projections include a range of variants based on different assumptions about future levels of migration. The projections are produced for all local authorities in England & Wales and nationally for Scotland and Northern Ireland

The most recent set of trend-based population projections currently available are the Interim 2021-based variant projections (January 2023).

The 2021-based projections comprise three principal variants which have been produced using different assumptions about future levels of domestic and international migration.
