Local low income families are facing the threat of no longer being able to rent in the areas that they have grown up in. Covid has seen a rise in house prices, due to the mass desire of people wishing to move in to the area and to holiday here. 

The main issue that we are facing is that there are no longer properties available to rent. They are gone as soon as they become available and often they stipulate that a person must have an income of £24,000 or more, which many local people do not.

We need our local government to tighten the rules on Air BnB lets. Second home owners should have to pay council tax and more low cost housing to rent/buy should be made available to local people.

Change needs to happen NOW, as local people are facing being homeless all across North Devon.
