Government's £150 rebate scheme

Eligible households across Allerdale will begin to receive their £150 energy cost council tax rebate from today (Thursday 12 May). 
 
More than 40,000 households will receive a one-off payment, with the first batch of payments for those in council tax bands A to D who pay for their council tax via direct debit.
 
There are some households whose Direct Debit details have not been verified and these will follow on as soon as possible. Households who don’t pay by direct debit will receive letters containing information on how they can collect the rebate from their local post office in the coming weeks.

Local Lettings Policy (LLP)

We want to make sure that local people can access homes in areas where they live, work or have close family. Some areas have low housing stocks and high demand. The Local Lettings Policy (LLP) is a set of criteria for applicants when they are applying to to get a property in one of these areas.

The LLP applies to all new housing association tenancies in the parishes of:

  • Cockermouth,
  • Keswick,
  • Above Derwent,
  • Bassenthwaite,
  • Borrowdale,
  • Caldbeck,
  • Lorton,
  • Underskiddaw and
  • St Johns, Castlerigg & Wythburn.

Anyone offered a tenancy in any of the parishes must meet at least one of the local connection criteria specified in the LLP, unless they are specifically exempt by a clause in the LLP.
