The Shire of Manjimup supports the need for a mix of effective holiday accommodation within the Shire. The development of holiday accommodation is dictated by the zoning of land in the Local Planning Scheme No. 4 (LPS4). Council may approve holiday accommodation via a development application provided it complies with the LPS4 and where it can be demonstrated that such facilities are compatible with the surrounding area.
Some types of holiday accommodation within certain zones are a permitted use and only require Council approval. Other types in certain zones also require advertising measures prior to Council approval. Some zones do not permit any type of holiday accommodation.
The LPS4 is currently undergoing amendments and will not be available on the website until such time as a final document is released. In the meantime, please contact Statutory Planning Services on 9771 7777 if you wish to discuss a proposed holiday accommodation development.
All types of holiday accommodation require an approved holiday accommodation development application prior to operating, please refer to the information sheet for further information on required information to be submitted with your application. The different forms of holiday accommodation include:
|Bed and breakfast||Backpackers|
|Motel||Low impact tourist short-stay|
|Tourist resort||Serviced apartment|
