There is a need for accommodation for the local population, not just for the university students.

I know a lot of young people who struggle to find affordable housing where they live and work. While there is holiday homes everywhere and luxury New homes being built.

I agree with Rebecca that it’s totally unfair for the best affordable properties to rent are earmarked for students in preference to local young people.

I know it is so unfair for young people.
Struggling so hard these days.
Why cannot councils build houses for rent like they did many years ago
Many people could pay lower rent.

Developers and councils are prioritising student housing in university cities/towns pushing out the post grads and young adults who wish to stay and work in these locations. This is combined with landlords having an influx of potential tenants due to COVID displacing a lot of people or people having to move from their current homes for work, so now they can be incredibly selective in who they take in their properties. This problem is far beyond just Falmouth, facing the same issues in Plymouth. It feels like an impossible situation that is entirely out of your control.

As an ex student of FCA I think there ought to be better provision for local people to buy property in Falmouth.

The young people need more affordable housing to be able to live in their home towns.
