Association of Scotland’s Self-Caterers (ASSC) Chief Executive, Fiona Campbell, commented:

“The ASSC welcomes the publication of the Scottish Government’s response to the recommendations made by the Scottish Expert Advisory Panel on the Collaborative Economy.

“In particular, we are encouraged by the commitment to take an evidence based approach to the issue of short-term lets. This is crucial as our sector generates over £720million of economic activity to the Scottish economy and is a vital component of our country’s tourism offering.

“The ASSC is also pleased to see the Scottish Government making such extensive use of our Code of Conduct that we published for the traditional short-term rental sector – such engagement is a positive indicator of the future direction of travel.

“The ASSC looks forward to engaging with the Short-Term Lets Delivery Group as it takes forward its work assessing the challenges and opportunities of short-term lets to Edinburgh and the rest of Scotland.”
