“Brighton can’t handle students anymore”


Yes, they can contribute to the local economy (per your editor’s August 3 comment), but they don’t benefit local residents.

They pay no council tax – so who foots the bill for collecting and disposing of their rubbish? Ordinary taxpayers, of course.

Born and raised in Brighton, I have lived in Bevendean Crescent for almost 50 years and have seen our beautiful area ruined by exploitative landlords who didn’t care if they let their buildings and gardens fall into disrepair.

And before people say “but that’s why we’re building more student housing to free up houses for families etc.” that’s a bunch of crap.

Students always want a home, to be independent, free from constraints, to party with friends and to be able to park their car for free.

Our London Road has been ruined. We lost Peacocks, Island and Boots to name a few. To build more student housing!

Now they want to reconfigure Moulsecoomb Place. They say it would benefit local residents (they also said it about the Lewes Road Academic Corridor) but I can’t see how.

What are you offering us? Our services (medical) in the area are already overloaded. How many more students can we handle? The answer is simple – no.
