Continental looks for (another) owner

THE Continental Hotel at Sorrento is up for sale – again – with proprietor Julian Gerner (pictured left) saying its redevelopment is “too big a project to handle alone”. He now wants to sell the 1875 icon for “north of $20 million” and then lease it back from the new owner and run it as his own business. The developer reportedly paid the long-standing Di Pietro family about $15 million in July 2016 and then fought skirmishes with the Mornington Peninsula Shire and Nepean Conservation Group at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal over his proposed changes. He said he had always planned to complete the hotel’s costly redevelopment but “financial” pressures mean he is unable to do so. See story page 7

New laws flagged for ‘party houses’ Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au OWNERS of so-called “party houses” on the Mornington Peninsula will be in for a tougher time if a new local law gets the nod. The proposal, which the shire says is the first of its kind in the state, will introduce a registration system for owners of short stay rental accommodation and requires them to nominate an appointed agent who must respond to neighbours’ complaints within two hours.

A code of conduct will govern the number of occupants and establish expectations for their behaviour, as well as setting rules on car parking and rubbish disposal. The aim of the proposed law is to address the impacts of anti-social behaviour by occupants of short stay rental accommodation properties across the peninsula. It follows complaints each summer by neighbouring residents about rowdy tenants who ruin their weekends with late-night noise and alcohol-fuelled aggression. Penalties will be imposed for

breaches of the Local Law and the Code of Conduct. The mayor Cr Bev Colomb said the council had been working with residents and authorities for 12 months to develop plans for a “cooperative approach to prevent antisocial behaviour and to specifically address local conditions and reflect local concerns”. “Council acknowledges the input of the local community, short term rental accommodation operators, as well as that of Victoria police and industry representatives from STAYZ, Air BnB, Holiday Shacks and the

Mornington Peninsula Regional Tourism Board,” she said. Cr Colomb said that while most business owners took a responsible approach to the letting of their properties, a range of issues could cause “significant disruption to neighbouring properties and operators should be held responsible for the behaviour of their customers”. “Problems reported … include anti-social behaviour of occupants, loud noise late into the night, car parking congestion and poor rubbish disposal, which is not acceptable in residential areas.”

A well run short stay rental accommodation market is acknowledged as vital for peninsula tourism. The mayor said the local law would “bring [the industry] more in line with commercial accommodation options”. “The [proposed law] will result in better and more responsible management of these accommodation options and improve amenity to our residents and visitors,” she said. The Short Stay Rental Accommodation Local Law (Draft) is on display until 5pm, Friday 7 December, at mornpen.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay.
