By-law & Licensing Home
In 2003, as a result of residents' concerns about the unsightliness of front yard parking, the decrease in property values due to this unsightliness and the potential for derelict and/or commercial vehicles to be parked on residential properties, Council adopted By-law 84-03 to prohibit and regulate front yard parking.
The Front Yard Parking and Driveway Apron By-law:
- Prohibits parking in a front yard or exterior side yard, except on a driveway or enclosed building(garage);
- Establishes a minimum standard for landscaping (to be defined) in a front yard in order to maintain the aesthetics of residential neighbourhoods;
- Establishes maximum driveway widths based on garage and lot widths consistent with the Town’s existing Zoning By-laws and Driveway By-law (By-law 117-08) in order to ensure consistency; and
- Formulates a By-law that minimizes to the greatest extent possible, potential non conformities, especially in the newer developing areas.
