In 2016, the NSW Legislative Assembly Committee on Environment and Planning conducted an inquiry into the adequacy of regulation for short-term holiday letting in New South Wales; the Government response to the Parliamentary Committee was released on 20 April 2017. The Government generally supports these findings and recommendations, as well as traditionally supporting any findings and recommendations of the Parliamentary Inquiry.
