Hi all. I have never posted here before so I hope it is appropriate! Would be interested in hearing other’s views on the new proposed amendment being debated currently over here in Scotland.
"If this amendment becomes law, it will affect you if:
You are the host of a property in Scotland that is not your primary residence, for example, your second home; and you do not have specific planning permission from your local authority to operate commercially.
If those conditions apply to you and the amendment becomes law, you will have to apply for planning permission from day one of hosting."
I will not be affected as I only rent my entire place for the duration of August, but am finding the whole debate really interesting. Seems to be a lot of lobbying on behalf of Air and encouraging Scottish hosts to speak out: https://www.airbnbcitizen.com/how-to-have-your-say-on-the-scottish-governments-planning-bill/?utm_source=airbnb&utm_medium=email&utm_content=BodymoreandstayuptodateontheScotlandPlanningBillonAirbnbCitizen&utm_campaign=Masterversion&af=1977852
