15 October WA Parliamentary report on Short Stay Accommodation a good first step October 15, 2019 By Accommodation Association General WA, report, Accommodation, Short Stay 0 On the 26 September the WA Economics and Industry Standing Committee issued its final report into short term rental accommodation. The report clearly recognises and highlights the regulatory imbalance the currently exists between short term accommodation and short- term rental accommodation. In line with the Association’s submission in early March 2019, the recommendations pointed to key areas that need to be addressed inclusive of: • A better definition of short-term rentals that will ensure a consistent approach across the State and differentiates short term rental from regulated short term accommodation providers. • The development of model by-laws to assist strata owners in managing their properties. • The recognition of the importance of a mandatory state-wide registration scheme in providing confidence to guests when booking, local governments in ensuring compliance with planning laws, and residents in protecting their amenity. The Committee has recommended the appointment of an interdepartmental working group to co-ordinate a whole-of-government response for short-term rental accommodation.
