Troutbeck (Lakes) Parish Housing Need Survey 2010

The Survey

We posted out 244 survey forms to the parishioners of Troutbeck (100%).  51 households returned their completed

forms.   This is a return rate of 20.90%.

Of the returned forms, 8 (15.69%) responded, saying that either the whole household or someone living in the household

 needs to move, within the parish, in the next 5 years.  This will be analysed further in the conclusion to this report.  In

Cumbria since 2003 on average 17.32% of returned survey forms, completed by Cumbria Rural Housing Trust, have

identified a local housing need.

This brief report details the information derived from these 8 survey responses who expressed a need.  None of the

households are on the Local Authority or Housing Association register or waiting list.

Housing Need

Of the 8 households indicating a housing need or multiple need, creating 9  households (existing and new) in need of

alternative housing in the parish in the next 5 years, we consider that 4 new/existing households are in need of

affordable housing within the Troutbeck Parish area.

                                                                4     Within 3 years

We consider that the remaining 5 do not fit the criteria of being in affordable housing need.

The household types of these 4 are:

Household                                                 Now       < 12 months     < 3 years       < 5 years

Adult child                                                   0                 0                 1                 0
