Clackmannanshire Council is to establish a short term lets licensing scheme in 2022 by 1st October 2022.
On 1 March 2022, the Civic Government (Scotland) Act 1982 (Licensing of Short Term Lets) Order 2022 ('the 2022 Order') was enacted to introduce new powers for local authorities to regulate short term lets through the introduction of a licensing scheme under the Act.
The licensing scheme was brought in by the Scottish Government with the aim to ensure short term lets are safe, address issues faced by neighbours, to facilitate local authorities in knowing and understanding what is happening in their area and handling complaints effectively.
The short term let licensing scheme will cover a wide range of residential accommodation including, but not exclusively, self-catered properties, B&Bs, guest houses, glamping pods and yurts.
There are four types of licence for short-term let accommodation:
Updates of progress in developing the Clackmannanshire scheme will be posted on this webpage, but if you have any specific queries then please contact email@example.com.

Please note that fees lodged with any Licence application are non-refundable.
