The housing board for Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and West Suffolk logo

A collection of datasets linked to the Housing Board for Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and West Suffolk.

You can find a description of hte Board and its background here 

The aim is to buid up a set of information for local experts to analyse, including past trends, current information and future projections.

Wherever possible we will use this space to share "already available" information, presenting data from various partners without adding to the existing burden of collection - helping get the best value possible from all the work put into this collection process, already.

We'll do this in "open data" format to make it as straightforward as possible to use, re-use, combine and anayse the information.

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 includes

  • Cambridge
  • East Cambridgeshire
  • Fenland
  • Huntingdonshire
  • South Cambridgeshire
  • Forest Heath
  • St Edmundsbury
  • Peterborough

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.
