Short Stay Letting and Home Hosted Accommodation Local Law

On 21 October 2021, Noosa Council adopted a new local law for short stay letting and home hosted accommodation. The new local law commenced on 1 February 2022. 

  • The local law regulates and manages the ongoing use of short stay letting to reduce the impacts on permanent residents and residential amenity through a local management framework and code of conduct for guest behaviour. Conditions will be placed on the approval which must be adhered to, including requirements for a local contact persons to deal with complaints and a code of conduct for guest behaviour.

  • Approval is required for all existing and new properties operating short stay letting or home hosted accommodation, unless identified as exempt. A one-off application must be made to Council under the local law which requires annual renewal.
