1000 submissions on holiday let

Byron Council received almost 1000 submissions on its proposals to control holiday letting across the shire.

The council's acting director of planning, Wayne Bertram, said it was the second largest number of submissions received from a public exhibition.

"Staff are currently logging the submissions,” he said.

“The next stage involves each submission being reviewed and compiled into a report for council.

"Due to the large number of submissions, we are aiming to have the report to council mid-year.

"At this stage we have no indication of the numbers 'for' and 'against' the proposed holiday letting model.

"The volume of submissions clearly indicates the community's interest in the issue of holiday letting and we thank the community for their input."

While many residents support the council's precinct plan, the Holiday Let Organisation (HLO) is vehemently opposed to it.

HLO spokesman, John Gudgeon, said if given the go-ahead, the council's plan would have an adverse impact on the whole community.
