Under Consideration

Proposed short-term-rental accommodation reforms

State Wide

The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment and the Department of Customer Service sought feedback on the draft instruments and Regulations that will introduce the state-wide planning framework and mandatory Code of Conduct for short-term-rental accommodation (STRA).

The proposed changes are outlined in a Discussion Paper, which also sought feedback about introducing a new industry-led STRA property register. 

Consultation.

The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment and the Department of Customer Service welcomed feedback from the community, government agencies, councils, industry and other stakeholders during consultation. This will help us better understand the opinions and concerns of the community, which inform the Government’s decisions.

On 5 October 2018, the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment exhibited an Explanation of Intended Effect which outlined proposed amendments to planning rules to introduce the STRA planning framework. The Department has published submissions received at Department's Plans and Policies website.
