State Government reforms to planning and building requirements for visitor accommodation use have come into affect.

If you plan to use your existing home, shack or investment property for visitor accommodation, you need to be aware of the Government’s reforms to planning and building requirements, which came into affect Statewide from 1 July 2017.

Planning and building requirements will vary depending on how you plan to use your property. A summary of the new arrangements is available via the following links. The new arrangements only relate to the use of an existing property where no development is involved.
