As part of the new “Vacation Home Rental Community Education and Bylaw Compliance Campaign” project, the Hornby Island Local Trust Committee passed a new Standing Resolution at their April 27, 2018 regular business meeting, regarding the enforcement of VHRs on Hornby Island:



that the Hornby Island Local Trust Committee adopt the following Standing Resolution:

“That the Hornby Island Local Trust Committee suspend enforcement actions against unlawful Vacation Home Rentals until January 1, 2019 except where there are issues of health, safety or environmental impact”.



A list of Standing Resolutions in effect to date, can be found on our website here. The short-term suspension of bylaw enforcement action via this Standing Resolution, is intended to allow for the community education and communication aspects of this phase of the VHR project to commence, and to provide adequate time for voluntary compliance without the immediate risk of enforcement.
