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.
