Plan Change 22 Definition of Visitor Accommodation

The purpose of Plan Change 22 is to amend the definition of visitor accommodation to resolve the current consenting dilemma where a homeowner cannot advertise and rent their house on a short-term basis for even just a few days per year, while away on holiday, without having a resource consent for visitor accommodation. 


Made Operative 16 April 2009. See item 4 on the 31 March 2009 Full Council Agenda.
