The City of Edinburgh Council has launched a second consultation on Short Term Lets in the City this time asking for your views on their proposed Licensing Policy.

The consultation available here opened on 25 July 2022 and will run until 5 September 2022.

As a result of the Civic Government Scotland Act 1982 (Licensing of Short Term Lets) Order 2022 being passed by the Scottish Parliament, Councils 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.

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