Short-term rental accommodation Planning Proposal

On display until 31 October 2022, 12:00 AM

We are proposing to reduce non-hosted short-term rental accommodation (STRA) from 180 days to 90-days per year for most of the Byron Shire. 

For parts of Byron Bay (East and West), Suffolk Park and Brunswick Heads it’s proposed to increase STRA to 365-days i.e. all year round.

The Short-term rental accommodation Planning Proposal is on public exhibition from Thursday 1 September to 31 October 2022.

Council has been delegated authority to make the plan subject to the proposal not being amended to reduce non-hosted STRA period on any land to less than 90 days.
