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.

The Ward 20 Short-term Let Control Area comes into force at 12pm on Monday 4 March 2024 details of which can be found at Short Term Let Control Area for Badenoch and Strathspey (Ward 20).
