Transitory accommodation

In 2022-23, Council introduced new rating categories to encourage more properties to be available on the long-term rental market. This means houses and units rented to paying guests for temporary accommodation purposes will pay higher rates.

If your property is offered, available or used for transitory accommodation, or you know of a property which is being used for these purposes, complete the online form
