MEDIA RELEASE: Byron Council Resonds to Unauthorised Letting

Byron Bay Residents are applauding a decision by Councillors to investigate unauthorised short-term holiday rentals across the Shire.  “Council does receive complaints regarding noise, loss of amenity, anti-social behaviour and general disturbances… As more people choose to let their properties for holiday rental the number of properties available for permanent rental dwindles impacting on housing availability and affordability.”


Such rentals obviously compete against properties approved and recognised as tourist and visitor accommodation.


Neighbours Not Strangers can identify operators in the Byron Shire who list 97, 52 and 40 etc homes apiece, with many other commercial landlords listing multiple premises.


Shire residents are being encouraged to contact the Council’s Community Enforcement Team on (02) 6626 7000 or email
