We are a group of undergraduate students from the London School of Economics and Political Science. We are participating in IGNITE, a research project in association with four London boroughs that aims to gauge the impact of short-term lettings on local residents and businesses. In particular, our sub-group are looking specifically at the borough of Camden. The purpose of this research is to provide the boroughs with an evidence base for the way renter data is reported. As in light of the Deregulation Act of 2015, council tax payers are allowed to rent out a room or home for up to 90 days a year, through platforms like AirBnB. By changing how renter data is reported, the local authority would be able to monitor, more effectively, who is renting, where and when. If it were possible, it would be fantastic if any members of your association were able to fill in this survey (lse.eu.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_aYvgsrHrEzVh7y5) understanding the impact of short-term letting, and if platforms for short-term letting has impacted the local community in any way.
