The City of Wanneroo is extending the opportunity for you to have your say on its proposed local law to regulate small-scale short-term accommodation. This is another version to that previously advertised.
If adopted, the local law will require providers of small-scale short term accommodation (for no greater than six occupants) are registered with the City. However, these small-scale proposals will be exempt from planning approval since the number of occupants is not likely to impact on the amenity of the neighbourhood. This will ensure a more streamlined process for small-scale short term accommodation applications.
Once registered, should the short-term accommodation provider not comply with the terms of registration, the City can initiate compliance actions as per the local law.
Please note: This proposed local law was advertised for public comment earlier this year and as a result of the feedback received, the draft local law was amended to restrict holiday homes being located in a specified zone. In contrast, the previous version of the law stated that a holiday home must be located in a specified zone. This amendment was considered a substantial change to the proposed local law and was therefore re-advertised for public comment.
The City welcomes your comments, even if you have provided, or considered giving feedback previously.
Comments can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to the Chief Executive Officer, City of Wanneroo, Locked Bag 1, WANNEROO WA 6946.
