Council carries out major housing study

17 November 2015

Allerdale Borough Council’s Housing and Health Team are embarking on a major housing study across the borough.

Consultants Arc4 Limited will be carrying out the housing study on behalf of Allerdale Borough Council over the next four months. They will be sending out household surveys and talking to partners asking about the current and future housing needs.

This information will then be used by the Council to support and influence a balanced housing market over the next 10-15 years. The study aims to produce an accurate figure down to parish level on the type and size of housing that is needed and will be used by Allerdale Borough Council to shape future housing and planning policies.

Housing is an important issue throughout Allerdale and the provision of affordable homes is one of Allerdale Borough Council's key priorities.  The information will be instrumental in the development of a new Housing Strategy for Allerdale in 2016.

Carni McCarron-Holmes, Executive Member with responsibility for Housing, Health and Wellbeing said: “This is a major study which will inform the development of housing throughout the borough for years to come. It is crucial that this information is as accurate as possible, and therefore I encourage everyone who receives a survey to take the time to fill it in.”

A survey will be sent out from 18 November 2015 to households across Allerdale with a random sample  of households contacted in Workington, Cockermouth and Maryport.

If you receive a survey  and you have any queries, details of how to contact Arc 4 will be available on the survey You can also contact the Housing Development Team at Allerdale Borough Council for  further advice and assistance on 01900 702702, or email
