In response to Council’s motion to prepare a cost/benefit analysis of a potential shared rental housing licencing program prior to development of proposed regulations, a staff report is coming to the Planning, Building, Engineering and Environment (PBEE) committee on Monday, July 15.
Comments and input are welcome and encouraged. Rental Housing Licensing is a tool that has been implemented in several other municipalities, directed specifically to the rental of bedrooms in a detached, semi-detached and townhouse residences. Apartments buildings are regulated under other existing legislation.
This concept has sparked a great deal of debate — both for and against — and I am interested in your thoughts as Council deliberates whether this program will work for Guelph.
