Another Planned St James Garden Studio Leads To Airbnb Concerns Again

Shaftesbury Town Council has again raised concerns about St James Street properties potentially being used as B&B accommodation.

Last month, they requested that an application for an extended garden studio should not have a shower because it could make it more attractive as overnight accommodation. Now they’re opposing an extension of the garage at a property already offering self-catering accommodation.

Shaftesbury Town Council is concerned about AirBnB adding to parking congestion in St James’.

Councillors were concerned about the scale of the proposed development at St James Manor, which lies within a conservation area.
