The Marylebone Association Chairman's views on all things about Marylebone.

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. It might all seem a long way off but now is the time to understand what this will actual means for your quality of life and to make your voice heard. You might think that Heathrow expansion is long overdue and an end of those days of delays coming into land will be a good thing. The ten minutes saved in the air coming into land will undoubted be lost on the ground as the surface infrastructure of road and rail is not growing proportionately to meet the increased passenger capacity. Concentrating increasing passenger numbers in one location will only compound many of the existing problems. Living under the flight path will certainly not help our local air quality. The main issue will be aircraft noise. If you want to know what it will sound like take a walk in Battersea Park as this will be a similar height that the planes will fly over Marylebone and Mayfair. It might make a welcome change to the helicopter noise we routinely suffer, especially on summer evenings.

Short Term Letting - Concern for Marylebone Residents

Short Term Letting - Concern for Marylebone Residents

There is an issue that is becoming an increasing concern for residents, not just in Marylebone but in all parts of Central London and it is one of short term letting. It is illegal, in most circumstances, in Westminster at present to let out a property for under 3 months, but in spite of this it is still a problem. Westminster Council alone takes an average of about 500 enforcement actions a year, and it is already a difficult and expensive task. However there is a bill going through Parliament at present that is likely to make things a lot worse. Clause 21 of the Deregulations Bill enables the Secretary of State to make regulations to give London residents "more of the freedoms enjoyed in other parts of the country", more specifically the freedom to let property out for very short periods, but it is doubtful that most Londoners will want these particular freedoms when their true consequences are understood.
