Planning Control Areas for short-term lets
Your local council can make some or all of their region a short term let 'control area'. This means you need planning permission as a part of your licence to let out your whole accommodation in these areas.
City of Edinburgh
The City of Edinburgh is the only local council with a 'control area' right now. This covers the whole of the local council area.
Local councils without control areas
If your accommodation is not in a 'control area', and you do not have planning permission, you may still need this to apply for a short-term let licence.
You should check this with the local council planning department.
There is a problem
