Short Term Rentals In Essex Must be Regulated
Quality of life is important to the residents of Essex. In recent years, the town of Essex has become known as a popular place for tourism visitation. This demand created by tourists has led to a proliferation of Short Term Rental offerings in the town, specifically in the South near Colchester. With these unregulated lodgings has come a number of issues impacting the quality of life for nearby residents, with no recourse currently available for them to address these issues
Other communities with similar demand for tourist visitation have recognized the need for regulation of these types of rentals and have moved to enact same. These include Niagara On the Lake, Collingwood and Toronto.
The signers of this petition believe that council MUST ACT WITHOUT DELAY to regulate Short Term Rental accommodation..
