Clause 7.11 of Wingecarribee Local Environmental Plan 2010 (WLEP 2010) permits the short term rental of dwellings short term for tourist & visitor accommodation as follows:
7.11 Short-term rental accommodation
(1) The objective of this clause is to enable dwellings to be used as holiday accommodation, in certain circumstances, without requiring development consent for such use.
(2) Despite any other provision of this Plan, development consent is not required for the use of a dwelling for the purpose of holiday accommodation if the use of the dwelling for that purpose does not involve the extension or alteration of any part of an existing dwelling or the erection of a new dwelling.
(3) In this clause, holiday accommodation means an existing dwelling in which accommodation is provided on a commercial basis where the maximum period that any person is accommodated is 45 consecutive days (but does not include bed and breakfast accommodation).
A Council Fact Sheet is provided below for the assistance of property owners.
