Planning enforcement action against short-term lets

The request was successful.

Dear Clackmannanshire Council,

I’m seeking details of enforcement action taken by your authority’s planning team in relation to properties offered for short-term lets via platforms such as Airbnb.

Please could you provide the following under the Freedom of Information Act:

The number of planning enforcement notices issued by your authority in relation to short-term lets in each financial year from 2011/12 to 2018/19.

The number of planning contravention notices issued by your authority in relation to short-term lets in each financial year from 2011/12 to 2018/19.

If available, please also provide the number of informal warnings issued by your authority’s planning team in relation to short-term lets in each financial year from 2011/12 to 2018/19.

Yours faithfully,

Mark Wilding

Pauline Monteith, Clackmannanshire Council

Dear Mr Finlayson,

Thank you for directing me to the council's enforcement register. Please could you advise if any of the enforcement notices on the register related to unauthorised short-term lets?

And if any such notices were issued in the 2011/12 and 2012/13 financial years?

Yours sincerely,

Mark Wilding
