Tourism Position Statement

These consultations provide the opportunity to comment on the Western Australian Planning Commission’s draft Position Statement: Planning for Tourism and associated Guidelines.
 
It also provides an option to comment on the State-wide registration scheme which is being implemented by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries. 
 
The Position Statement, which proposes changes to how short-term rentals are treated through the planning system, runs in parallel with the proposed registration scheme. 

You should make comment using Survey 1 below if you are interested in giving feedback to how a future registration scheme could function in WA.

Note: Survey 1 is only for comments on the registration scheme only. Do not use Survey 1 to provide comment on the proposed development exemptions for hosted and unhosted accommodation. This includes comments on the proposed 60-day cap for unhosted accommodation to be exempt from the need to obtain development approval. Comments on development exemptions must be submitted using Survey 2 (below) to be considered by the Western Australian Planning Commission. 

 You should provide comment through Survey 2 below if you are interested in whether some forms of short-term rentals should be exempt from requiring development approval, and/or how short-term rentals are defined in the planning system.
