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.
