Highland Council wants to hear the views of residents, visitors, interested groups and organisations on the local authority’s short term let draft policy statement and proposed additional conditions for a licence.

Earlier this year the Scottish Parliament approved legislation to introduce a new licensing scheme for short-term let properties.

The scheme is due to come into effect on 1 October, later this year.

The council has now published its short term let licensing public consultation survey.

Its licensing committee is keen to hear views on the draft documents, firstly the draft policy statement and secondly the draft additional conditions.

Those interested in providing input can submit their views by completing the survey.

The closing date for responses is Friday 5 August.

A council spokesperson said: "The council will process any personal data respondents provide in response appropriately and in line with the Data Protection Act 2018.

"The council intends to publish a summary of responses received to the consultation exercise.

"This will include names if a response is submitted."
