If you have a concern about a boarding house in your local area, you can contact your local council. The Local Government Directory provides contact details for all councils in NSW. It is available from the Division of Local Government website.
Residential land lease communities
Prospective residents interested in moving into a residential land lease community can use the register to find out where parks are located and how to contact them. The register includes the community’s trading name, address, contact details and website address if it has one.
The register includes residential land lease communiities, residential parks and manufactured home estates where people live as their main place of residence. Residential parks that only offer accommodation for tourists, holiday makers or long-term casual occupants are not land lease communities and do not appear on the register.
For more information on the residential land lease communities register, see the Residential land lease community home owners page.
