Renewal Applications: Start from Step Two
Planning and building approval is generally required to assess the suitability of your proposed business in your chosen location including signage, in relation to zoning, parking, amenity and general compliance with the Building Code of Australia.
Please contact our Planning Services team:
Planning approval is not required for holiday accommodation.
Any application for registration of short stay accommodation must be supported by:
- Site plan of property
- Floor plan of the accommodation
- Management Plan
- Emergency Response and Fire Management Plan
- Code of Conduct for Lodgers
- Complaints management procedure
- Check-in and check-out procedures (e.g. booking, key collection and drop-off)
- Waste management procedures (e.g. cleaning and rubbish collection)
The application needs to clearly demonstrate that the proposed holiday accommodation can be adequately managed and will not cause nuisance or adversely affect the amenity of the locality.
Our guides may also help to ensure you have complied with the respective acts, codes, local laws, standards and regulations and that you obtain the relevant approvals and licences.
If renewing a licence and the details have not changed, you do not need to resupply the supporting documents.
Lodging Houses and Holiday Accommodation Defined

This includes a lodging house within a recreational campsite for sporting, religious, ethnic or educational pursuits, a serviced apartment and a short term hostel.
