Short-term lets licensing legislation withdrawn

LEGISLATION for a short-term lets licensing scheme has been withdrawn from the Scottish Parliament, to allow for draft guidance to be developed.  

Says a Scottish Government announcement: “A stakeholder working group has been established to help develop the guidance and meets today for the first time. The guidance will help to provide reassurance on the operation of the scheme to operators and hosts in the sector.

“Subject to the outcome of the election, the Scottish Government intends to re-lay the legislation before Parliament in June, accompanied by the draft guidance, to ensure that the timetable on introducing licensing remains the same.”
