Through this review the NSW Government will work with all stakeholders to ensure outcomes
contribute meaningfully to increasing housing affordability, and stability in NSW.

Minister for Planning and Public Spaces Paul Scully said, “We’re in a housing crisis, so it’s important we look at every available option to boost housing supply, including a shift from non-hosted short-term rentals to long term rentals.”

Minister for Housing and Minister for Homelessness Rose Jackson said, “All options are on the table and we are keen to hear from the community on how various aspects of regulatory and revenue measures can be designed to get the best outcome.

“This review will inform our approach to make better use of all forms of housing, including short
term rentals, vacant property and holiday homes.”
