Purpose and scope of the guidance
The Guidance was approved by the Council's Environment, Infrastructure and Economic Development Committee on 1 November 2023 and has now been adopted as non-statutory guidance.
Please note: Feedback on the Proposed Short-Term Let Control Area is being collated and will be reported to the Environment, Infrastructure and Economic Development Committee early in 2024. This will accompany an updated evidence paper, incorporating information from the Short-Term Licensing scheme, and will inform the decision whether to proceed with the statutory process of notification and consultation of a Short-term Let Control Area.
Strategic Environmental Assessment
The draft guidance was considered under the Environmental Assessment (Scotland) Act 2005. Pre-screening identified that it would have no or minimal environmental effects because it will be non-statutory and sit within the framework of the National Planning Framework 4 which has undergone full SEA. It is therefore exempt, and the SEA Gateway has been notified.
