Short Term Rental Public Consultation

Huron Woods has been invited to take part in this public consultation. The Board would like to ask for help from a member who would have time to take part as a representative of the Board and our community and report back afterward. We are a day late for the deadline but have been offered a spot. Please email hwca@hwca.ca if you are interested.

Dear Huron Woods Community Association,

The Municipality of Lambton Shores has initiated a public consultation regarding short-term rentals (STRs) in our community. The purpose of the public consultation is to capture the positive impacts of STRs, while also identifying the challenges associated with them in our communities. To make an informed decision, Council directed staff to gather public opinion regarding licensing and regulatory options.

The process began by identifying short-term rental properties in Lambton Shores, followed by two consultation phases:

  1. Public Survey (now complete)
  2. Stakeholder Meetings

As an important next step, the Municipality is organizing several virtual workshops with short-term rental stakeholders. These workshops include short-term rental owners/operators, as well as organizations that are either directly or indirectly impacted by short-term rentals and the tourism industry.

As an identified stakeholder organization, we would like to invite you to attend our virtual stakeholder discussion on Wednesday, November 24 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The purpose of this stakeholder meeting is to discuss the common concerns in our communities and facilitate meaningful conversations around solutions that balance the needs of short-term rental hosts/operators with those of residents looking for safe and appropriately managed short-term rental accommodations. Information collected through the stakeholder meetings will be presented to Council for their consideration. The perspective and feedback from this virtual discussion will be an invaluable part of the consultation process and we hope you will be able to attend.

We have reserved one seat for your organization. If possible, please respond to this email by Monday, November 15 to RSVP or decline the invitation. If you are unavailable, another person can attend on behalf of your organization.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

We hope to see you there.

Sincerely,

Alex
