Short Stay Letting - Proposed Local Law Amendment

SHORT STAY LETTING – PROPOSED LOCAL LAW AMENDMENTS AND PUBLIC INTEREST TESTING

Background

In response to a significant number of submissions to the draft New Noosa Plan on short term accommodation, a local law is now proposed to manage the operation of short stay letting of residential properties.

In addition to the proposed local law, the new Noosa Plan will additionally regulate where short stay letting (short term accommodation) can and cannot occur and identify when a development approval is required.

What is short stay letting?

Short stay letting is where a residential property is made available, on a commercial basis, for use by one or more persons (other than the owner) for a period of less than 3 consecutive months.

What will the proposed short stay letting local law do?

The proposed Local Law will regulate the operation of short stay letting. The proposed local law will:

  • regulate the day to day operations of short stay letting for matters including occupancy, residential amenity, parking, waste and use of outdoor areas;
  • require the nomination of a responsible person managing the short stay letting;
  • introduce a code of conduct;
  • identify when an annual approval is required to operate short stay letting;
  • specify all the documents and materials that must be submitted with the application for approval.

Public Interest Test Plan
As part of the review, Council is obliged to identify possible anti-competitive provisions in each of the proposed local law and the proposed subordinate local law and undertake a public interest test in relation to each of the proposed local law and the proposed subordinate local law as they contain possible anti-competitive provisions.

Community feedback

If you support or object to the proposed local law written submissions can be made from Friday 18 October to close of business Monday 11 November, 2019.
