Aldingham Parish Housing Need Survey 2008

The Survey

524 survey forms were delivered by post to the households and businesses of the parish of Aldingham (100%), with a return date of 10th November 2008.  127 households returned their completed forms.   This is a return rate of 24.2% which is below the average of 36.64% return rate for this type of survey in Cumbria since the beginning of 2006, and below the national average of 35%.

Of the returned forms, there were 19 (15%), responses, saying that either the whole household or someone living within the household needed to move, within the parish, in the next 5 years. According to surveys completed by Cumbria Rural Housing Trust since 2003, an average of 18.44% of completed forms identified a local housing need.


See section 9 of this report for the criteria used to determine whether a household was in need.


This report details the information derived from these 19 survey responses who expressed a need. One household stated that it was registered on the Local Authority and/or a Housing Association or other waiting list.
