Communities support new Short-term Let regulations

POSTED ON August 30, 2023 BY Terry Levinthal

The Cockburn with local community and housing groups ask that the City of Edinburgh Council and Scottish Government give little weight to the pressures posed by a well-funded industry lobby group to delay the implementation of STL regulations.  Local communities have been placed under huge pressures by the untrammeled expansion of STLs across the city.  It is time to restore some balance and ensure that Edinburgh remains a place for people to live.
