Planning Bulletin 99 - Holiday homes guidelines

This planning bulletin provides greater certainty for the local government and the growing holiday home sector.

On this page

The guidelines have been developed in response to the growing number of holiday homes - particularly in popular tourism destinations - over the past decade.

The guidelines propose possible changes to local planning schemes and the preparation of policies tailored to address specific issues encountered by local governments in their region.

Other key proposals include:

  • holiday homes being formalised as a land use class in local planning schemes
  • local governments developing local planning policies on holiday homes
  • the identification of preferred areas for holiday homes.
