A temporary reprieve for Scottish hosts

I know we’ve discussed this before, but not for a long time.

It looks like the SG are having a bit of a rethink, and it appears that most in tourist sector are welcoming it.

The Scottish government has withdrawn legislation aimed at regulating short-term lets.

Ministers had drawn up a licensing scheme to give councils new powers to tackle problems caused by the rapid growth of Airbnb-style holiday lets.

But the government said it was dropping legislative proposals until draft guidance had been drawn up.

It plans to put a new law before parliament in June, subject to the outcome of the May election.


So do you finally get a post-Brexit vote on independence? My SNP acquaintances over there are getting grouchy. :wink:
