New regs for Airbnb proposed for Kelowna

Changes could be coming soon to the rules around Airbnb rentals in Kelowna. 

On Monday, city council will hear a staff report outlining new regulations for short-term rental accommodations. Included will be business licences and a cap on the number of people allowed to stay per rental.

The planning department is proposing a one-year license of $345-dollars, if the unit is the owner's principle residence, and $750 dollars otherwise. 

Also in the new regulations, a short-term rental can be NO longer than 29 days. The maximum number of people per rental will be six, depending on how the neighbourhood is zoned.
