Short-Term Rental Survey

Welcome to the conversation on Short-Term Rentals!

The purpose of this consultation is to explore the local issues related to short-term rentals and to determine how to move forward in Oliver as it relates to Zoning Bylaw amendments.

A short-term rental is a home, or a room in a home, carriage home, suite, that is rented for less than 30 days at a time, e.g. daily, by weekend, weekly or bi-weekly basis to visitors who return to primary residence elsewhere at the end of their stay. 

The Brief is available to read here, please read first then complete the survey.  The survey will take 10-15 minutes to complete, so grab your favorite beverage, have a seat and let us know what you think.

Thank you.
