Spatial portrait of the Borough

In preparing the Core Strategy, it is important to understand what Allerdale is like now and how the borough may change in the future. The planning policy team have prepared a number of papers and documents whose purpose is to provide a profile of the area, its people and facilities.

Allerdale Atlas 

The Allerdale Atlas has been prepared using evidence from a wide range of sources. It gives a comprehensive overview of the Borough in terms of:

  • Demographics
  • Deprivation
  • Housing
  • Employment
  • Retail
  • Community Safety
  • Healthy Living
  • Natural Environment
  • Historic Environment
  • Transport
  • Services and Facilities
  • Climate Change

The purpose of the Atlas is to identify the opportunities and constraints that operate within Allerdale and what needs to be done to address the issues and challenges the Borough is likely to face over the next 20 years.

Locality Profiles 

The Borough has been divided into six geographical areas which broadly follow the service delivery locality working areas of the Council. Following a series of consultation exercises, the planning policy team has produced profiles for each locality area. Stakeholders helped provide a contextual overview of each Locality by identifying the strength and weaknesses relevant to each area. The planning policy team has used this information to develop policy frameworks for each locality that reflects it needs, priorities and individual distinctiveness.
