The Town of Essex is advising owners of Short-Term Rental Units (STRU) to complete the licensing application as soon as possible in compliance with the municipal bylaws.
As a reminder, all persons seeking to operate a STRU in the Town of Essex must obtain a licence to operate within the jurisdiction by December 31, 2022.
To apply for an STRU license, visit www.essex.ca/STRS to access the online STRU Licensing Application by December 31, 2022. STRUs must also be located in a district, and within a building, where STRUs are permitted under the Zoning Bylaw. As a reminder, only those STRUs located in a residential district operating on or before May 9, 2022 are eligible for a licence. New and existing STRUs are permitted to operate with a licence in commercial, agricultural and select green districts.
