AL in Lisbon: municipal assembly says ‘no’ to new registrations

Lisbon’s municipal assembly has approved the suspension of any new AL registrations (AL standing for ‘Alojamento Local’ and meaning ‘short-term holiday lets) in parishes where the ratio of permanent homes to AL is more than 2.5%. According to Público, this means that wherever there are more than 2.5 ALs to 100 permanent homes, registrations are to be ‘suspended’ for at least the next six months. For the decision to take effect, it has first to be published in the municipal gazette.
