Porto defends local accommodation

Councillor to collaborate with Airbnb platform

The Porto Town Hall Councillor for Tourism, Ricardo Valente, has announced that condominiums will have to consult local government if they are to prohibit any local accommodation (AL) arrangements, like those popularised by the Airbnb platform.

Presenting a set of measures aiming at defending homeowner’s rights regarding AL´s, Valente also announced the creation of a role of local accommodation Mediator ‘for each parish, basically to be the middleman between residents and the local accommodations’.

The Councillor expects to publish a document next week, which includes a code of AL good practices written collaboratively with Airbnb.
