Rein in Abuse of Short-Term Lets

There are over 8,300 Westminster properties and rooms listed on Airbnb at any one time and this number is rising. Westminster Council currently has little real power to regulate this growing industry. That’s why I will continue to make the case to the Government for effective enforcement powers to be given to the Council to bring down the number of what are effectively permanent short-lets, and restore the lost sense of security and community to neighbouring residents.


Deregulation Bill

Mark Field: Sensible, pragmatic regulations exempting the Greater London area from a short-lets free-for-all are, as we know, under acute threat.
