Donald Cameron MSP has welcomed a Scottish Government decision to postpone new legislation for short term lets which was opposed by tourism operators over concerns about new licensing fees for the B&B and self-catering operators.
Mr Cameron, for the Highlands and Islands, said the sector needed space to recover not ‘red tape and bureaucracy’. The government proposed the legislation to combat anti-social behaviour and the loss of residential housing stock to tourism.
