To: Edinburgh Council

Edinburgh Council, impose a £3 per night tourist tax to fund social services and street maintenance.

Add a £3 per night tourist tax on hotel bills and use it to help fund social services and street cleaning and maintenance. This would be a far lower tax than many other cities charge.

Why is this important?

Edinburgh Council plans to stop funding many vital social services - this doesn’t need to happen. For too long, Edinburgh citizens have been paying to clean up after tourists in the city centre while non-central areas of the city are neglected. The only people who benefit from the tourist trade are business owners - the rest of us pay for it. A modest tourist tax could keep vital social services running.
