Short-stays referred to committee

08 Dec 2016

Short-stays referred to committee Image

The Opposition has delayed the second reading of the short-stay accommodation bill by referring it to a parliamentary committee for further scrutiny.

The second reading of the Owners Corporation Amendment (Short-Stay Accommodation) Bill 2016 will now not proceed before March 7 next year when the Environment and Planning Committee is due to report back to the Legislative Council.

Moving to refer the matter on November 7, Eastern Victoria Member Edward O’Donohue wants the committee to report on:

  • “Undertaking proper consultation with peer sector economy providers, individuals and owners’ corporations short-stay letting providers;
  • The impact on individuals, families, apartment owners and owners’ corporations of short-stay letting in apartment buildings; and
  • The adequacy of owners’ corporation rules in managing impacts on amenity, noting also the lack of adequate planning on the part of the building and construction sector to accommodate the impact of high-intensity short-term lets.”
