As I said before, open your eyes to the wider benefits. Nor is student accommodation in conflict with providing affordable housing Or accommodation for the homeless. What people fail to understand is that if student accommodation was not provided then the city would have no more accommodation for the homeless or home for locals. There are different parts of the housing market which are not connected in such simplistic ways. Where in fact providing additional student accommodation can free up traditional housing and help overall with increasing the supply of the housing market.
I see benefits every day from students the night before...puke ...vomit....bottles ...beer cans...urine on every doorway in the city...food wrapping and leftover food thrown all over the place...students have turned Nottingham into a sh..t hole..council need to think of locals and homeless...not just students
Did you know that the vacancy rate of the student accommodation across the city is practically zero? What gets built is being taken up by students and therefore helping to accommodating increases in student numbers and free up homes around the City. The university and students play a vital role in the economy of the city creating many new jobs and services m. Without student development then very little would have happened in the city centre through the recession. Much of the new stock has been either conversions of old office accommodation, regeneration of brownfield sites or conversion of some historic values buildings. I think you need to open your eyes to the benefits that students and the award winning Universities can bring to the city and the wider regionrather than jumping on the band wagon that the impact of them is all negative.
SSurprised it's not students only bearing in mind nearly every new build in the city is for students...not locals or the hundreds of homeless people sleeping in doorways of every city centre shop or business....these flats are an eyesore too...destroying a once beautiful city which now resembles glass house town
Thanks for sharing - would be interesting to have a look around
