Community Profile

So what’s this profile about?

The Rastrick Big Local Community Profile is intended to help in the development of our Big Local Plan and aims to:

  • Build up a picture of Rastrick as a place / community
  • Make sense of what we might need and what mutual interests we have
  • Give an idea of what we already have and start the process of identifying whether we can make more use of the capacity within the community
  • Provide a ‘starting point’ to plan from and a guide to look back and assess change.
  • Act as a resource to help us make decisions about Big Local

Thus, what follows are a number of sections giving details of:

  • The local geography and history
  • The population and its demographic and social characteristics
  • Levels of affluence and deprivation
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Education, qualifications and skills
  • Employment and work / training opportunities
  • Housing and household amenities
  • Crime and community safety
  • Transport
  • Environment
  • The services, facilities and networks that are available locally in both the statutory and non-statutory sector

The profile draws on statistics and information that are publicly available from local, regional and national sources.

For the purposes of this profile, the figures used are largely drawn from the 2011 national census data in relation to the areas covered by the Rastrick Big Local area.

These figures are slightly higher than the figures for the Rastrick ward (which does not include some roads that are in the Elland electoral ward).

Figures for RBL area are based on an aggregation of the following Lower Layer Super Output Area for Calderdale: 19E 23A 23B 23C 23D 24A 24C 24D 24E.
