Nuisance Bylaw – Vehicle Crossings

Vehicle crossing


We’re proposing to amend our Nuisance Bylaw to include Vehicle Crossings. Before we do we want your feedback on our proposed changes.

What is a Vehicle Crossing?

A vehicle crossing is where a vehicle can cross from a road onto a private property.

About our proposed amendment

So we want to change the bylaw so you have to apply for a permit to build or change a vehicle crossing.

Permit conditions will include details like thickness, dimensions, reinforcement and materials that we consider necessary for safety reasons.

This will help us to ensure new or altered vehicle crossings are safe for other users of shared spaces (such as a mobility scooter on a footpath).  It also means we could issue fines and seek costs from the landowner if vehicle crossings are installed that don’t comply.
