Keswick Community Housing Trust say that there's an enormous gap between what people in Keswick can afford to pay and the real cost of housing.
A recent survey carried out by Allerdale District Council found that housing was unaffordable for virtually the entire local population with wages completely out of line with the cost of accommodation.
The average wage for the lowest quarter of Keswick's population, (the majority who work in tourism catering, retail and other low paid work), is £14,019.
The lower quartile price, (the average of the lowest quarter of property prices),
for a property in this area is £167,461.
