    This is a residential community the last thing we need is short term rentals
    Parking is congested now
    This is a quiet street we want it to stay that way

  4. Vicki Cathcart commented

    Parking, noise and less security! These are the reasons why Short Term Rentals are not preferred for a low density residential area. Added to that, the Noosa Council has been slow to get any regulations about STAs for any residential area! People have paid handsomely to live in a quiet area. There are many areas that cater for the tourist market in and around Noosa. Why are you continuing to make a mockery of your own Plan for Noosa.

    I don’t know anyone who is a permanent resident of Noosa that wants to be close to short term lets as there are so many problems associated with them. Generally a quiet , upmarket residential area does NOT want to be turned into a noisy holiday playground.

  6. Russell McGuire commented

    Short Term (ie holiday) Accommodation is incompatible with the character of Low Density Residential zoning of the Noosa Waters estate in the following ways:
    1. occupancy levels in properties often exceed the usual residential levels;
    2. vehicle ratios are higher, with spill-over onto the narrow streets with cars, trailers, boats, etc. causing issues with accessibility;
    3. noisy behaviour of tenants, often extending past midnight and without consideration for neighbours; noise travels readily across the water of the canals so the nuisance is imposed on many tens of permanent residents around the water body;
    4. STA tenants too often use the canal waterways without any knowledge of or consideration for the speed limits or the nuisance and potential damage they impose on all waterfront owners; too often these rude and inconsiderate people abuse the residents who attempt to explain the need for speed limits.
    The long-term Noosa Waters resident profile has been mature aged couples / families / retirees enjoying the quiet lifestyle provided by the Low Density Residential zoning. STA / holiday rentals encroach on this lifestyle and deprive permanent residents of the benefits sought, offered and enjoyed under the Low Density Residential zoning.
    STAs are incompatible with and should never be allowed in Noosa Waters.

    As nearby residents who love our beautiful street and great caring neighbors we are increasingly concerned by the advance of STA into prime residential areas.
    The problems that inevitably result are well known and do not need to be restated here.
    We are very disappointed by the self serving attitude of several leading real estate agents who will loudly praise the great quiet neighborhood to potential permanent buyers but then advise non permanent potential buyers to hurry and register for STA under the old rules "just in case" it may increase he value or direct business to the rental part of their agency.
    Property owners are not in this area are not impressed and will remember who is most vocal in promoting STA in residential areas when it comes time to next chose or recommend an agent.

    There should be absolutely no air b and b's allowed within the Noosa Waters Estate. It causes more traffic, bad boating behaviour on the canals, extra noise and we, as residents, pay high prices both for homes and rates, to live in this very quiet area, so why would we want to spoil it? Also, we keep being told that the tourism industry is taking a bad hit with Covid and booking numbers are down. So let's help them keep hotels, registered short stay apartments etc., full and leave our lovely area to the home owners to enjoy.

    There’s a great opportunity to get the local law right (not the planning instrument), it’s open to public feedback now. Everyone with interest needs to participate in this local government process. The proposed local law doesn’t go far enough in my view.

  10. Kylie Cirillo commented

    I am disappointed at a comment from a large agent saying if the vendors want the big money ,the new owners want return and that's Airbnb......
    Well I hope when they getting Air BNB next to there home in Noosa Waters that they enjoy the continually parties ,disrespect, that some Airbnb guest show,the multiple extra cars,they may understand why we dont care for it in our street....It is not just about them making big sale for the vendor, or even bigger commission for themselves.
    It becomes a case of safety,security for the other residing residents in the street.

  11. Jeanette Gentle commented

    This application should not be approved. Residential areas need to be kept as residential areas. Airbnb is a business. Under zoning laws businesses are not allowed in residential areas. Airbnb if not controlled will do what overdevelopment was stopped from doing in Noosa. Airbnb is out of control in Noosa and proposed new laws are not strong enough to deal with it. I encourage residents to contact Council re the application for a material change in use.

  12. Chris TROY commented

    We strongly object to this application for STA. This would be for the benefit only to the pockets of the house owner, with huge detrimental effects to the many families that neighbour this address. Perhaps it will take an STA to be approved next door to a Councillor's own home or their elderly parents for them to understand the dramatic negative impact these STAs are having in residential neighbourhoods before there is a change of heart.

  13. Joy matus commented

    No no no to STA
    We do not want our beautiful community and environment impacted by overcrowding streets and noise.

    Short Term (ie holiday) Accommodation is incompatible with the character of Low Density Residential zoning of the Noosa Waters estate since:
    1. occupancy levels in properties often exceed the usual residential levels;
    2. vehicle ratios are higher, with spill-over onto the narrow streets with cars, trailers, boats, etc. causing issues with accessibility;
    3. noisy behaviour of tenants, often extending past midnight and without consideration for neighbours; noise travels readily across the water of the canals so the nuisance is imposed on many tens of permanent residents around the water body;
    4. STA tenants too often use the canal waterways without any knowledge of or consideration for the speed limits or the nuisance and potential damage they impose on all waterfront owners; these people mostly ignore the residents who attempt to explain the need for speed limits.
    5. One factor that gives Noosa Waters much appeal is the quiet lifestyle provided by the Low Density Residential zoning. For this reason, any activity amounting to a commercial "function centre" is disallowed under the current rules. Allowing STA invites and allows the use of such properties as venues for bucks parties, hen's parties, graduation celebrations and similar activities, which are properly described as "function centre activities".
    6. Council would be in breach of its obligations to the community if it prohibits commercial function centres in Noosa Waters, but opens the door (literally and metaphorically) to such activities by allowing the operators to wrongly describe their function centres as "short term accommodation".
    7. Council restricts the number of levels a building can have as part of the overall plan to preserve the "village atmosphere" which so much defines and characterises Noosa. If STA is allowed (and de facto function centres follow), Council may as well allow the developers to have unlimited levels of development in residential buildings. The result will be the same. The very thing that makes the area attractive and valuable (its village atmosphere) will be milked by the commercial operators for their personal benefit, and thereby destroyed to the detriment of the permanent residents.

  15. Grenville Snowdon commented

    Noosa Waters is a residential community not a holiday resort.
    Too many STA's are detrimental to the community.
