Short Term Let Control Areas
Control Areas in Highland
In recent years, there has been a rise in the number of houses and flats being taken out of full-time occupation and used as short-term accommodation. To address this issue, the Scottish Government introduced new legislation in 2021 to allow Local Authorities in Scotland to designate all or part of their area as a Short Term Let Control Area.
There are currently no Short Term Let Control Areas designated within Highland.
There is a proposed Short Term Let Control Area for Badenoch and Strathspey (Ward 20).
