TWEED residents have the chance to voice their concerns about the future of short term rental sites, like AirBnB and Stayz.

Given the rise in popularity for short term holiday letting (STHL), the New South Wales Government is working to implement strategies to manage the properties that are advertised online and is calling on the community to help in the process.

The government has released an STHL options paper which assesses the possibilities of "greater industry self-regulation, registration or licensing of STHL operators, changes to strata laws and regulation through the planning system”.

Our Strata Community, Our Choice spokesman Stephen Goddard said it was important for apartment residents to raise any concerns they have about STHL.

"Owners' corporations want a say on short-term stays and if it is allowed in residential buildings, and this options paper makes provision for that,” Mr Goddard said.
