The challenge by a local businessman to The Blue Mountains’ Short Term Accommodation Bylaw (STAB) has been denied, and costs in the region of $20,000 have been awarded to the town.   “Short Term” refers to rentals less than 30 days in length.

According to The Blue Mountains’ website:  “The Superior Court of Justice – Ontario Divisional Court today released the decision of The Honourable Thea P. Herman denying an application for leave to appeal from a decision of the Ontario Municipal Board (“OMB”) respecting the Town of The Blue Mountains adoption of an Official Plan Amendment, Zoning By-law Amendments and Interim Control By-laws related to Short Term Accommodation uses (accommodation in a residence for a period of 30 days or less). In addition to denying the application, Judge Herman awarded the Town costs in the amount of $20,000.

David Finbow, Director, Planning & Building Services, opined that the decision now “allows the Town, in consultation with stakeholders, to proceed in earnest in exploring ways to regulate short term accommodation uses by way of a system of licencing.”
