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.

Evidence Base Reports

Playing Pitch and Outdoor Sports Strategy (PPOSS) 2021

The Playing Pitch and Outdoor sports Strategy provides a clear strategic framework for the maintenance and improvement of existing playing pitches and accompanying ancillary facilities up to 2030. It has been developed in conjunction with Sport England, the pitch sport National Governing Bodies, sports clubs, league associations, schools and colleges, and informed by a review of the borough's sports pitches and ancillary facilities. The study was undertaken during the Covid-19 pandemic but the report presents information based on what supply and demand would have been like had there not been any restrictions in place. Consideration is also given to the impact of Covid-19 and the issues clubs, teams and users face as a consequence.

Retail and Town Centre Study 2020

A joint Retail, Town Centre and Leisure Study was carried out for Allerdale and Copeland Borough Councils. The Study assesses the current position and need in terms of additional retail and leisure provision until the end of the Local Plan Period (2029) and considers the vitality and viability of the Principal Centre in Allerdale (Workington) and its Key Service Centres (Aspatria, Cockermouth, Maryport, Silloth and Wigton). It should be noted that the data collection and subsequent assessment was undertaken before Covid-19 and prior to the country being put on ‘lockdown’.
