Short-term Lets — Scottish Government Survey

The Local Government, Housing and Planning Committee wants your views on
plans to regulate short-term lets

If approved, the new laws would see the introduction of a licensing
scheme for short-term lets. The Scottish Government suggests that the
new laws would:

* make sure short-term lets are safe,
* help with issues faced by neighbours from short-terms lets, and
* help councils know and understand what is happening in their areas
about the provision of short-term lets. . .
