Holyrood’s Local Government, Housing and Planning Committee also want your views on plans to regulate short-term lets until October 29th.
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.
Ahead of the new laws being introduced later this year, the Committee wants to hear from people across Scotland about whether the proposed laws will achieve what they set out to do.
Plans to regulate short-term lets in Scotland are expected to be considered in November and December.
The Committee would like to hear what you think about the suggested changes before it considers them and is doing a survey so you can give us your views. You can access the survey by following the link below:
