A Nelson City Councillor is hoping a made-in-Nelson solution can be found regarding the effects of short-term vacation rentals.
Michael Dailly, who is Chair of the Housing Committee, is speaking to a recent call for the city to amend bylaws around Air BNB for example.
This is because these rooms are going to tourists when they could be going to local families seeking longer term accommodation.
Dailly says there needs to be a wider community conversation about this.
Dailly says the city will also be researching what other communities have done.
