Houseboat and caravan dwellers form part of our local housing market.
This dataset aims to bring together some information to help us see the scale of the issue in our local area.

This data is simply a starting point, being launched in April 2017, and at this stage is looking to bring existing data together to shed some light on the scale of this part of our housing market.
There are two source of data: 1. Council Tax records identifying the number of houseboat dwellers in 2015 and 2016. 2. A web search for local marinas and moorings in the local area, undertaken in April 2017.
We are very pleased to have now uploaded geo-coded data on the location of some of the marinas and moorings across the area, and hope to add more data and maps in future.

Notes on council tax houseboats data 2015 and 2016 Source: VOA’s administrative database as at 31 March 2015 and 2016. Counts are rounded to the nearest 10 with counts of zero being reported as "0" and counts fewer than 5 reported as negligible and denoted by "-". Totals may not sum due to rounding. Geographical level of the data presented: England and Wales (ENGWAL), National (NATL), Regional (REGL), County/Metropolitan County (CTYMET) or Local/Unitary Authority/London Borough (LAUA). Consists solely of houseboats moored in rivers, marinas etc, which are used for residential purposes and are therefore banded for Council Tax purposes.
