A proposal to consult on the designation of a Short-Term Let Control Area for the entire Council area was approved by the Planning Committee on 11 August 2021.A public consultation will run from Friday 3 September until Friday 5 November.

The proposal for designation, a map of the area proposed and supporting documents can be viewed on the Council’s website.  A certified copy of the Designation will be deposited at City Chambers Reception, 249-253 High Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1YJ for inspection by any person free of charge, Monday to Thursday between 9am and 5pm and Friday between 9am and 3:30pm.

The new powers would mean all residential properties, which are not an owner’s principal home, being let as short-term lets in their totality throughout the local authority area would require approval of a ‘change of use’ to a short-term let.

Representations regarding the Designation may be made during the consultation period. This can be done through the Councils Consultation Hub.
