By building more social housing fewer people will be sleeping rough or in vehicles. Visitors can find this upsetting or off putting. Thanet has a current severe shortage of social housing with vulnerable people sleeping rough and many of the bed and breakfasts providing temporary accommodation instead of visitors to the area. So called “affordable” housing isn’t affordable to those in need. Private renting is also unaffordable and the local housing allowance is woefully inadequate. If local people have access to proper homes it increases morale and more pride in our town.
