I'm not saying where I live but I think my town is typical of many. We have been taken over by huge developments of student flats everywhere we look. It has gone berserk!
We have homeless people living on the streets but the council can afford these flats which are only occupied for half the year. I agree students need to live somewhere but what happened to halls of residence? There are plenty of private landlords offering accommodation. It seems to have got out of all proportion.
With Brexit who knows what changes will be made to border controls as most of these students are coming in from abroad?
Our historic town now has massive scaffolding, ugly and out of proportion, yes, another block of student flats.
Maybe I am being unreasonable, but I'd like to see some decent flats for pensioners or young working people starting off.
