Stirling gives green light to Airbnb
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.
