City of Edinburgh Council review on short lets

A review of Edinburgh’s short term lets (STL) licensing will take place this summer.

During a meeting of the Regulatory Committee on Friday (21 June) Councillors at Edinburgh City Council agreed to publicly consult on the city’s existing policy and conditions framework. This is in line with a decision taken in 2023 that the city’s policy would be reviewed after a year.

Regulatory Convener, Councillor Neil Ross, said:

The opportunity for everyone to input into how the short term lets licensing scheme is working was a commitment we gave last year. We want to hear how the scheme has impacted the residents and businesses of Edinburgh. With Committee members’ approval today, we’ll now work towards launching a public consultation in the summer. I’m confident this will help us to better understand how businesses, residents and others are finding the policy and regulation of short-term lets in Edinburgh.

Details of the public consultation will be publicised on the Council’s consultation hub over the summer and a report highlighting the results and further recommendations will be brought forward in the Autumn.
