5 June 2015: Camden publishes LSE London research on cross-boundary effects of HMO licensing
As part of their consultation about whether to introduce borough-wide additional HMO licensing, the London borough of Camden commissioned LSE London to conduct research on the cross-boundary effects of HMO licensing to determine whether they needed to consult in other boroughs. The report, produced by Kath Scanlon and Emma Sagor, concluded that local housing markets cross the border between Camden and adjacent boroughs and therefore the effects of licensing in Camden would likely have cross-boundary impacts. Camden subsequently completed a consultation with residents and businesses in other boroughs, and the recommendation for additional HMO licensing was approved on 4 June 2015.
