Housing affordability: Gladys Berejiklian urged to allow apartments to ban Airbnb rentals

Premier Gladys Berejiklian is being called on to consider giving strata residents and owners corporations the power to ban short-term letting of apartments through sites like Airbnb, arguing the practice is driving up rents.

A day after Ms Berejiklian declared that she would prioritise the issue of housing affordability, the Owners Corporation Network (OCN) said a crackdown on short-term letting was "the first, easiest and cheapest step" she could take.
