The Town is currently undergoing a review of our fence by-law. The Town is proposing to update the by-law with new provisions that will better serve our residents. Major changes include:

  • The current by-law only allows for open style fencing . The proposed new by-law will allow for both open and closed style fences.

open and closed fence styles

  • The current by-law generally states that fences must be set back 25 feet from the property line on corner lots. The proposed new by-law will streamline the verbiage and allow corner lots to put fences right on the property line.

  • The current by-law allows fences to be a maximum of 6 feet high. The proposed new by-law will allow home owners to construct a fence up to 6.6 feet tall.
