CURO and holiday lets

CURO are now letting out more and more of their city centre Georgian property as holiday lets

We question whether this is an appropriate policy for the city’s principal provider of social housing. There is a considerable shortage of affordable housing in the city centre and a clear demand from people working in the city, particularly in the light of the poor and expensive public transport links into the city.

We are also concerned at the impact that such a policy will have on the community dynamics of the city centre.
