You said

We received 90 responses to the consultation on a variety of issues contained in the draft policy statement.  A substantial number of responses referred to the legislation as a whole and disagreement with the introduction of a licensing scheme.

We did

A Report was prepared and placed before Perth and Kinross Licensing Committee on 22 September 2022.  That report included all consultation responses.  The Committee then decided the full terms of the Short Term Lets Licensing Scheme Policy Statement to apply from 1 October 2022. 


Provide us with your views on the new short term let licensing scheme 

Earlier this year the Scottish Parliament approved legislation to introduce a new mandatory licensing scheme for short term let properties.  It is due to come into effect on 1 October 2022. The short term let licensing scheme will apply to a wide range of accommodation including self-catered properties, B&B’s, guest houses, glamping pods and yurts.

Responses to this consultation will be considered by the Licensing Committee.
