Impacts of Second Homeownership for Mixed Neighbourhoods
MetadataShow full item record
The impact of residential status, becoming a landlord, owner-occupier or tenant, is mostly discussed in the literature in terms of their relationships with each other and the organisation of their daily life in terms of its similarities and differences. However, there has been little research to analyse the above aspects in terms of the role of short-term stayers as second homeowners. How does the relationship to the second homeowners vary with resident status? This project sheds new light on the neglected issue of short-term rentals in the creation of place and belonging in a specific area, as related to residential status. In addition, while tenure status become less visible, when comparing this research with the existing work in the literature, location, personal interests, preferences, age and generational differences influence the different tenure groups’ preferences. This paper considers Ocean Village in Southampton as a case study. This redevelopment waterfront area comprises businesses, residential and leisure facilities at the same time and it has been ongoing since the 1980s. This research is based on both quantitative and qualitative data. The findings illustrate that short-term stayers have a significant impact on the creation of different tenure groups’ place and belonging.
