Establishing a statutory registration or licensing scheme for holiday accommodation operators in Wales
You may be aware that independent research agency, Strategic Research & Insight (SRI), have been commissioned by Welsh Government to explore establishing a statutory registration or licensing scheme for holiday accommodation operators in Wales.
MWT will be speaking to SRI to share the views of our membership.
MWT members, please help us to collate your responses by completing our short survey. Your views are really important.
>> Complete survey here by 7th December 2021.
SRI will be speaking to stakeholders as well as researching best practice in other countries, to consider:
Visit Wales said, "There are significant potential benefits of the scheme, including a level playing field for professional and amateur accommodation operators, and a much better oversight of the sector to inform decision-making in tourism, housing, environmental health and taxation. We also recognise there are wider views and considerations that need to be explored.
As it will not be possible for SRI to speak to all tourism businesses as part of this work, please feed any comments you have through your representative body; these will help form the decision on whether a scheme is implemented, and if so, how."
