Refused planning permission for my Airbnb


I am very upset as i have been refused planning permission for my Airbnb in Edinburgh  There have never been any issues and the neighbours have been very supportive.  What is the last date that I can let it out?  Is it up until the end of March 2024?

Hi Lynn,


I am so sorry to hear that. There is a company called And they work with the council and hosts in Scotland. I would give them a call or drop them an email.


Let me know how you get on.
