City of Edinburgh Council have launched a consultation into their prospective short-term let licensing regime. This will be the first of two consultations: this one focuses on the principles of the licensing scheme where the council will seek to hear from a wide range of stakeholders – from residents, community councils and trade groups. The results from this will then help inform the second consultation on the draft policy and conditions, which is expected in June.
Given the demands on your time, the ASSC has provided a briefing and suggested answers to help inform your submission.
We kindly ask you that you respond to the consultation by 10th June 2022 and circulate it to any family or friends who live in the Edinburgh area so we can maximise the positive response for those who work in, value and enjoy our capital’s self-catering industry.
