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 a roundtable discussion which will focus, among other things, on the impact of short-term lets on the availability and affordability of housing in these cities; the relationship between the expansion of short-term lets and incidences of anti-social behaviour; the wider impact on communities and community cohesion; and questions of displacement. We will also consider whether the benefits to the local economy outweigh the costs, and what effective regulation might look like.

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

CONFIRMED SPEAKERS:

  • Professor Nicole Gurran, University of Sydney
  • Dr John Boyle, Rettie & Co.
  • Dr Mark Livingston, Urban Big Data Centre
  • Representatives from the Dublin Housing Observatory

Tea & Coffee will be available.
