Bid to make Scottish fairgrounds easier to hold

Fairground, generic image

A bill is being proposed to the Scottish Parliament which, if enacted, would reduce barriers to travelling funfairs.

Currently a licence must be obtained from the local authority before a funfair can be held in Scotland.

Fairgrounds do not require a licence in the rest of the United Kingdom, with a council notification being all that is required.

Under the new Scottish proposals, the local authorities would have a maximum of 21 days to consider applications, which must be received at least 28 days before the proposed event.
