Barossa's Boundary Conversation

In having this conversation it is critical to remember that the possibility of boundary reform isn’t about one Council ‘taking over’ another, but instead is about what is best in the long term for the communities that Council represent.

Council to work alongside bed and breakfasts

“Following relaxation of requirements by the State government several years ago, the increasing popularity of Airbnb and a growing range of other online booking platforms, we have seen a steady rise in accommodation providers coming into the market,” he said. “We urge operators who may be unsure about what is required for their business to get in touch with us so we can assist.” Mr McCarthy stressed Council wants to work in partnership with B&B operators to get the best outcomes. “We want to give them the right advice so we can be assured our accommodation venues across the board are providing visitors with the required level of facilities.” Existing and prospective B&B operators are encouraged to call Council on 8563 8444 for further information or to make an appointment with a Council officer.
