Thanks for your reply.
You have got to consult the planning permission that was granted to you to check the condition upon which you are permitted to rent it as a holiday let. Usually these types of let are for a short term only, if you let it on a longer term than stated in the permission then this will be a breach of the planning permission which the planning department would be entitled to enforce.
You should ask for clarification on the specific breach and see if you are in fact breaching it.
If there are no conditions attached to the permission for holiday letting then there is no restriction on the length of time you can let it.
