Update on Allerdale flood reception centres

6 December 2015

Allerdale Borough Council has closed its flood reception centre in Keswick after all those who had been evacuated from their homes were found alternative accommodation. The reception centre at Cockermouth School remains open at this time.

Anyone who experiences a housing issue related to the flood, or who needs to report a dangerous property, should call the Council’s out-of-hours service on 01900 702702.

The Cockermouth School centre on Castlegate Drive will remain open until further notice. Those who need assistance can simply turn up at the centre and do not need to call in advance.

Allerdale Borough Council housing officers have spent the day finding temporary accommodation for those people evacuated from their homes who do not have friends or family to stay with. They will be working with those who cannot return to their homes when the flood waters drop to help them find places to stay until their properties can be repaired.

Anyone who needs housing assistance, or help with anything else flood-related, can call the Council’s customer services teams on 01900 702702 or email
