Planning application at 35 / 1 Collins Street Hobart Tas 7000

As a resident of 1 Collins Street, I wish to object to an application from the owner of 35/1 Collins Street for short term visitor accommodation.
As I understand the by-laws of our Body Corporate, there is a provision prohibiting owners from leasing their unit for anything less than 6 months.
Additionally, owner-occupiers have moved here in the expectations of living in a quiet building; the likelihood of noise, disturbances and damage increases with short-term letting - as is well known by the reporting from many other places of such occurrences.
I consider that there urgently needs to be a change in planning rules to prevent such short term accommodation arrangements.
