Planning application at 35 / 1 Collins Street Hobart Tas 7000

My husband and I live next door to the apartment which would become short term visitor accommodation if this planning application is approved. We purchased our apartment five years ago with the understanding that the bylaws of the Body Corporate contained a provision that owners are prohibited from leasing out their units for a period shorter than six months. We are concerned about noise, rubbish, parking, damage and general disruption arising from short term occupants who have no interest in the quiet and tranquil atmosphere that has made the building a pleasant place to live up to now. I have lodged an objection to this planning application with Hobart City Council. We have not made any donations or gifts to any Alderman or and Coucil employees.
I’d certainly hope so, in relation to any donations or gifts! That you would see fit the need to add this to your letter is a concern about your perception of Hobart City Council Aldermen. Nonetheless, if the by-laws of your Body Corporate prohibits leasing in such terms, then this becomes a civil legal matter for the body corporate to ultimately decide, regardless of any planning decision outcome. I would be raising this matter very strongly with your body corporate committee. People sometimes make the mistake of getting planning permission and then thinking they will persuade the body corporate.
Kind regards, Alderman Dr Eva Ruzicka Hobart City Council
