Marylebone under Heathrow’s 3rd runway flightpath

When you moved to Marylebone you probably did not imagine you would be living under the flightpath of Heathrow. Well that is exactly what the third runway means for Marylebone & Mayfair.

However, this problem is spreading throughout the rest of London, creating a shortage of available long term flat and house rentals for people wishing to live and work in London. In some capital cities such as Berlin and New York the problems have became so acute that these cities are banning short term lets. London needs to find a solution which can work for genuine short term lets and avoid the extreme commercialisation of this market.
