New NSW Government Proposals on Renting Accommodation
NSW is said to have taken another step in solidifying its position as Australia’s top nanny state this week, with the release of the Options Paper on Short Term Rental Accommodation. The Australian taxpayers alliance has been quick to voice its resistance, saying the paper is evidence of a disturbing NSW Government trend to over-regulate and impede our growing economy.
The Alliance has said the papers proposals will not fix the housing affordability crisis but simply add to expense, stifle freedom of choice and hurt tourism. They’re saying to really chip away at the housing affordability phenomena governments need to focus on re-zoning and cutting stamp duty and other taxes that add to expense.
The Daily discussed this with Satyajeet Marar, Director of Policy at the Australian Taxpayers Alliance.
