Proposed Amendments to Clean Yard By-Law 3810

The Town’s Clean Yard By-Law 3810 regulates yard maintenance standards within Town limits. The current By-Law was last reviewed and adopted by Council in 2014. Since that time,  “natural” or “English” gardens have become a trend in gardening. By-Law Services has received complaints regarding these types of unmaintained gardens.

A number of changes to the Clean Yard By-Law are now proposed. During the by-law review process, staff consulted and communicated with other municipalities of similar size as well as larger municipalities that face virtually identical issues relating to the enforcement of clean yard by-laws.

A copy of the amended Clean Yard By-Law 3810 along with supporting material is available for review between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday, at the Town of Tillsonburg Customer Service Centre and on the Town of Tillsonburg website. If you have any questions or comments regarding the proposed changes, please call 519-688-3009 ext. 4601 or submit written inquiries/comments by email to gvanhaelewyn@tillsonburg.ca on or before May 26, 2021.
