Description

Short-term lets: evidence and experiences from Scotland, Ireland and Australia

The rapid growth of the collaborative economy has connected individuals and communities via online platforms and enabled the sharing or provision of goods and services, assets and resources without the need for ownership. These developments have enabled the expansion of online accommodation platforms, or non-traditional short-term lets, like AirBnB, which has raised substantial planning and regulatory concerns in major cities around the world.

In this seminar, we will discuss evidence and experiences of short-term lets in three major cities: Edinburgh, Dublin and Sydney. The session will include presentations by guest speakers from Australia and Ireland, as well as leading thinkers from the Scottish scene. We will focus, among other things, on residential tourism, local neighbourhoods, disruptive technology and housing markets. The session also includes a workshop on what effective regulation might look like, the results of which will feed directly into the current Scottish Government consultation on a regulatory framework for Scotland.

The session will be hosted by CaCHE and facilitated by the Urban Big Data Centre.

Speakers include:

  • Prof Nicole Gurran (Professor, Urban and Regional Planning, University of Sydney)
  • Oona Kenny (Researcher, Dublin Housing Observatory, Dublin City Council)
  • Martin Grehan (Data Analyst, Housing Data Management Unit, Dublin City Council)
  • Professor Declan Redmond (UCD and Vice-Chair, Advisory Board, Dublin Housing Observatory)
  • Dr John Boyle (Director, Research & Strategy, Rettie & Co)
  • Dan Cookson (Independent Housing & Spatial Information Specialist, co-founder of BuiltPlace)
  • Dr Mark Livingston (Research Fellow, Housing Research, Urban Big Data Centre)
  • Gery McLaughlin (Scottish Government)
