It was a great day in the Victorian Parliament on Tuesday for all residents and owners in strata communities.

After parliamentary debate and strong opposition, the Owners Corporation Amendment (Short Stay Accommodation) Bill 2016 has been referred to Environment and Planning Committee for inquiry.

This parliamentary vote has stopped the Victorian government trying to introduce a bill that only supported commercial short-stay operators in residential buildings.

This is a huge win for the "we live here" Movement who have been working tirelessly with politicians from both sides of Parliament to achieve this outcome.

A special thank-you to the Liberals, especially The Hon David Davis, Shadow Minister for Planning, Russell Northe, Shadow Minister for Consumer Affairs, along with Nina Springle from the Greens and Fiona Patton from the Sex Party who all supported the “we live here” Movement on this issue.
