Local authorities have been more ambivalent, valuing the economic growth deriving from the expansion of their local higher education institutions and the extra consumer spending by students but concerned by the general decline in maintenance standards in these areas as well as the social disruption that has fuelled the out-migration of families from cities to the surrounding areas.
The recent boom in the construction of tower blocks of student flats, often in more central parts of cities, should be helping to curb the further expansion of studentified residential areas and may in due course allow these areas to resume their former role, especially if there is a continuation of the recent increase in students opting for their local university.
In this talk, Professor Tony Champion will consider the colonisation of residential neighbourhoods by university students and some recent changes in student and developer behaviours which may help to curb the further expansion of studentified residential areas
