    Another rental being converted to short stay accommodation when there is a dire shortage of housing for couples families and professionals.
    We cannot attract medical professionals to Launceston because of the dire shortage of a housing which impacts on everyone .
    How can we continue to do this when we are seeing homeless people everywhere as a consequence of the council not regulating this sector
    Housing should to be need over greed.

    I echo the previous comments about housing concerns:

    There is currently a significant lack of properties available for long term rental in the greater Launceston area - housing that is needed for people to live and work and be a part of the community here. Converting properties into short stay accommodation only compounds this problem. If the Council is serious about helping to address the dire shortage of long term rental stock for local people then it needs to start the process by rejecting applications such as this one that turns homes into motels.

    I have spoken with the council officer allocated to this application. The application is only 'discretionary' because the apartment is on a strata title. For the application to have to go before Council there needs to be objections. I respectfully object to the granting of this application.

    I respectfully object to the granting of this application. I live in this area of Launceston and see increasing homelessness due to increasing short term rentals. There have dire consequences as a result.
