Site Alteration By-law Review

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Site Alteration By-law is designed to limit activities, such as removing or adding soil, which might change the level of a homeowner’s land. Changing the land’s surface, or grade, could interfere with the way water moves off your property. Water that can’t drain off can cause problems for yourself or your neighbour.

King Township is now reviewing the by-law in order to update it, including asking the community for feedback.
