Evaluating the Public Health Outcomes of the Cambridgeshire Time Credits Project – conference poster
This poster was presented at the School for Public Health Research annual conference about the evaluation of the public health outcomes of the Cambridgeshire Time Credits project in Wisbech.
Experimental review of the Cambridge Travel to Work Area (TTWA) as a tool for informing local housing policy - including a study of the Ely housing market in the context of the Cambridge TTWA
Travel To Work Areas are used primarily to understand local labour markets, but are also used in housing planning. However, TTWAs do not allow for overlap. Taking Cambridge as their example Chihiro Udagawa and Dr Paul Sanderson identify commuting areas for Cambridge that lie within the boundaries of other employment hubs. Their study suggests care should be taken when using TWAs for housing planning purposes.
Feasibility study of the prospect of developing a viable housing model for those entitled only to access the shared accommodation rate
This research was commissioned by Community Housing Cymru and the Welsh Local Government Association in order to establish what Local Authorities and Housing Associations in Wales can do to increase the economically viable provision of affordable accommodation for young single people under 35 in the social housing sector in the light of forthcoming housing benefit cuts.
Festival of Ideas event - The potential for Time Credits to generate public health outcomes
‘Time Currencies in Cambridgeshire: Exchanging Time, Connecting Communities’ was held at the Festival of Ideas and attracted an audience of over 60 people who were keen to learn more about Time Credit and Timebank initiatives across Cambridgeshire. Dr Gemma Burgess presented findings from the evaluation of the public health outcomes of the Cambridgeshire Time Credits project in Wisbech (available to download).

Household income distribution estimates: The example of Pay to Stay impacts in Local Authority areas in two English regions
Drawing on household income distributions, this pilot study estimates the localised impact and scale of Pay to Stay (PTS) for London and the West Midlands. The test results show that the new social rent regime will affect local authority (LA) areas unevenly – Pay to Stay affected household (PTS HH) proportions were estimated to range from around 6 to 16% while the counts ranged from around 300 to 6,500 households. PTS requires English local authority landlords to charge market (or quasi-market) rents to tenants on higher incomes.
Identifying housing need in the horseracing industry - Report
The aim of this research was to establish the degree and nature of current unmet need for affordable housing amongst racing staff and to make recommendations as to how that need may best be met.
