Consult further on the viability and legality of a transient visitor levy
We have considered raising a transient visitor levy. The funds could be used to promote Edinburgh as a destination. Following consultation, we have decided not to pursue this further.
Instead, we have researched other funding models. Marketing Edinburgh has secured funding to develop a way to promote the city.
There will be no more public or industry consultation until further work has been completed. We have agreed this with the Strategy Implementation Group (SIG) of the Edinburgh 2020 Tourism Strategy.
