Stir­ling gives green light to Airbnb

Stirling Times - - Street Watch -

PEO­PLE who ad­ver­tise ac­com­mo­da­tion on Airbnb will soon be able to op­er­ate in City of Stir­ling’s lo­cal cen­tres after coun­cil­lors changed its lo­cal plan­ning scheme.

Coun­cil adopted an amend­ment to its Lo­cal Plan­ning Scheme No.3 to al­low short term ac­com­mo­da­tion in lo­cal cen­tres, par­tic­u­larly be­tween Trigg and Water­mans Bay, at last month’s coun­cil meet­ing.

For multi-storey prop­er­ties fronting a road re­serve, ground floor ac­com­mo­da­tion would not be per­mit­ted to en­sure ac­tive ground floor uses were re­tained.

This amend­ment will be re­ferred to the Western Aus­tralian Plan­ning Com­mis­sion (WAPC) and Plan­ning Min­is­ter Rita Saf­fi­oti for fi­nal ap­proval.
