Association of Scotland’s Self-Caterers (ASSC) Chief Executive, Fiona Campbell, said:
“Scotland’s traditional self-catering sector contributes well over £723million to Scotland’s economy every single year.
“As the trade body representing this valuable sector, the ASSC is deeply sceptical of the rush to impose constrictive regulations that will stifle our industry and have an adverse effect on the livelihoods of many hardworking Scots.
“After extensive consultation with our members, we have produced and submitted our response to the Scottish Government’s consultation into short-term rentals which we feel represents the concerns of our membership accurately and provides a valuable industry perspective to the debate.
“The ASSC is hopeful that by continuing to work in good faith with all stakeholders we can secure a conclusion that is satisfactory for all.”
