December 7, 2019 | Community Information Meeting (CIM) Re: Bylaw No. 117
December 16, 2019 | Public Hearing - Re:Short Term Vacation Rentals (STVRs)

The South Pender Island Local Trust Committee (LTC) is undertaking a review of existing short term vacation rental (STVR) policies and regulations. In the interim, to prohibit the initiation of new STVRs the LTC has initiated a bylaw amendment to prohibit STVRs as a permitted principal use in all zones where residential dwellings are allowed. A community information meeting is being held on December 7th to answer questions and gather feedback from the public. A public hearing will be held on December 16th,  prior to further consideration of the amendment. More community engagement opportunities will be built into the STVR policy review process.
