The NSW Government is proposing changes to short-term rental accommodation (STRA) through a state-wide planning framework, a mandatory Code of Conduct and changes to strata legislation. The introduction of a new industry-led STRA property register is also being considered.
The short-term rental accommodation policy aims to strike a balance between managing social and environmental impacts and supporting the economic value of short-term rental accommodation.
Have your say on the draft Code, draft amendment regulations and STRA property register by 11 September.
