Short-Term Accommodation Local Law 2017

Community engagement has now closed. Comments were submitted from 09/06/2018 to 07/09/2018.


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.
