Not worried about holiday letting? Well you should be.
As you read this, Byron Shire Council is busy drawing up a new Short Term Holiday Accommodation Strategy behind closed doors at their chambers.
If enough negatively impacted people do not write a submission to council to tell them what they want, then all of Byron will be opened up for holiday letting.
Even if you are not being affected by holiday letting as yet, any of your neighbouring properties can become holiday lets at the whim of an investor.
Do not let this opportunity go by. Have your say while this is in the planning stages. Write an email or send a letter to the council and tell them what you think and feel and what you want.
Protect out current R2 zone where holiday lets are illegal and call for regulated holiday letting in the R3 zones closer to town before it gets any worse. Say no to R1 (holiday letting over the entire town) and please support VOHL’s efforts in getting council to not allow an open plan model.
