Airbnb claims Christchurch could miss out on much-needed visitors because of new council requirements for resource consents for house sharing

People who rent out unhosted visitor accommodation in residential areas will now need a resource consent.

It will cost at least one thousand dollars, but won't expire.

The decision can be appealed to the Environment Court.

Hospitality NZ Canterbury branch president Peter Morrison joined Simon Barnett & James Daniels to discuss the issue.

He said the Hospitality sector just wants a level playing field for all operators.
