Regulating Home-Sharing in South Australia: A Response to Lazar
Keywords:home-sharing, local council, land use, Development Act 1993 (SA), Development Regulations 2008 (SA), Local Nuisance and Litter Control Act 2016 (SA)
This commentary responds to Alex Lazar’s article in this volume entitled ‘Home-Sharing in South Australia: Protecting the Rights of Hosts, Guests, and Neighbours’. It concurs with two conclusions reached by Lazar: first, that there is adequate legal protection for hosts and their guests, and therefore no present need for reform in this area; and secondly, that there are few remedies available to neighbours who are affected by home-sharing, which is a problem that may require greater council oversight. Part I discusses home-sharing as a land use by reference to the Development Act 1993 (SA) and Development Regulations 2008 (SA). Part II then proffers some suggestions on how home-sharing could be regulated under the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 (SA) or the Local Nuisance and Litter Control Act 2016 (SA).
