I am increasingly hearing stories of rampant overcrowding and short term letting in larger strata buildings particularly in the CBD. Councils are limited in preventing this illegal practice because officers can be refused access to units to collect evidence needed in court. It is not clear whether strata law changes expected next year will address this problem and I’ve called on the Premier to act urgently. In response to my question in Parliament, the Premier committed to work with me and the City of Sydney on reform. See his response HERE and my letter asking for coordinated action HERE and my speech in Parliament HERE.
