Short Term Lets 2022 - consultation 2

Closes 5 Sep 2022

Opened 25 Jul 2022

Overview

We’ve previously asked you what the Council’s short term lets policy should include and what any additional licence conditions should cover. After considering responses to that consultation, a proposed short term let licensing policy and conditions framework has been developed.

As a result of the Civic Government Scotland Act 1982 (Licensing of Short Term Lets) Order 2022 being passed by the Scottish Parliament, local authorities in Scotland will introduce a licensing scheme for properties operating as short term lets. The licensing scheme will open on 1 October 2022, with all short term lets required to be licensed by July 2024.

As part of the licensing scheme, the Council must publish a licensing policy for short term lets in the city. Properties will have to conform to a minimum safety standard. The Council will also be able to add additional conditions to licences to respond to local circumstances.

Why your views matter

The aim of this consultation is to seek community and business views on the proposed licensing policy and conditions framework for short term letting in Edinburgh.
