Please let us know what your views are about the future plans for Cockermouth.
The current local plan suggests an increased need for 30+ houses in the town per year (about 300+ across the whole of Allerdale). This is to include provision for ‘affordable housing’, the older generation and those with specific housing needs. Some of these developments would need to be for rent rather than purchase.
We are aware that there are already several developments already in progress, as well as those that are approved but awaiting the start of construction. On top of this, there is a significant number of unsold properties available.
