On 20 March Alessandra Mossa and Dr Nancy Holman gave evidence at the Draft London Plan Examination in Public at London City Hall. They were there to discuss the impacts of short-term letting in London.

Their research, undertaken with colleagues Dr Mara Ferreri, Dr Romola Sanyal and Dr Erica Pani, has shown that regulation is almost impossible to enforce. Therefore any encouragement of the practice will only serve to increase the workload of borough planning teams and may risk further exacerbating the crisis of affordable housing in London.
