Planning enforcement action against short-term lets

Gwrthodwyd y cais gan Burnley Borough Council.

Dear Burnley Borough Council,

I’m seeking details of enforcement action taken by your authority’s planning team in relation to properties offered for short-term lets via platforms such as Airbnb.

Please could you provide the following under the Freedom of Information Act:

The number of planning enforcement notices issued by your authority in relation to short-term lets in each financial year from 2011/12 to 2018/19.

The number of planning contravention notices issued by your authority in relation to short-term lets in each financial year from 2011/12 to 2018/19.

If available, please also provide the number of informal warnings issued by your authority’s planning team in relation to short-term lets in each financial year from 2011/12 to 2018/19.

Yours faithfully,

Mark Wilding

Response:

 

We do not have any specific information in respect of planning enforcement
for short term lets and unfortunately I am unable to help you further with
your request.

 

You may, if dissatisfied with the treatment of your request, ask the
council to conduct a review of its decision under the council's complaints
procedure. The review will be carried out by someone who has not been
involved in dealing with your request for information. Please e-mail or
write if you would like a review.

 

If, following the review, you remain dissatisfied with the council's
treatment of your request then you may take your complaint to the
Information Commissioner at Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire
SK9 5AF.

 

Regards
