The City of Sydney council is believed to be ready to take action in the Land and Environment Court against The Bridgeport apartment complex for continuing to allow illegal short-term lets.
A special $200,000 levy has been proposed to fund for legal action against one resident, Trish Burt, a former member of the executive committee, who has allegedly campaigned against short-term lets in the building.
The 156 unit Bridgeport is close to Parliament House and is home to several state MPs.
The secretary of the Bridgeport’s committee, property lawyer Gary Best, and chairman Gerard van Rijswijk would be forced to resign their positions should Mr Best sell his units in the building. Mr Best has allegedly been in the forefront of the fight against the council’s short-term letting ban.
The building is managed by Australian Executive Apartments.
