Balanced Communities & Studentification

I attended the Councillors Campaign for Balanced Communities Conference in Nottingham on 13 March 2008.

At this conference, the National HMO Lobby launched its new publication, "Balanced Communities & Studentification". This booklet follows publications by universities and by students on students and communities - but this time, it puts the community's point of view. It does three things in particular:-

# it explains what a balanced community is (and why it matters);

# it explains what studentification is - and why it is such a problem for communities; and

# it suggests a Ten Point Plan, which should be adopted by local councils and other stakeholders, to tackle the root problem of studentification.

The booklet is available on the Lobby's website at Please take a look and let me know your views on this important topic for the future of Oldfield Park and the wider city of Bath.
