Lighting and Odour Nuisance By-Law Update

Posted On Friday October 30, 2020

On Monday October 26, 2020 Kingsville Town Council enacted a Lighting and Odour Nuisance By-Law that took effect immediately. 

The Municipal By-law Enforcement Officers have since been in contact with several greenhouse operators, and are working on formulating individual plans to attain compliance with respect to light nuisances. Additional outreach to all growers and property owners in this sector is being pursued to provide further awareness and education surrounding the requirements of the bylaw for both light and odour.

"This is a challenge faced across the region,” said Kingsville Mayor, Nelson Santos. “Council moved this bylaw to mitigate nuisances affecting overall enjoyment of property for residents, and our enforcement officers are setting short timelines to give growers the opportunity to comply, or provide proof compliance is imminent, before tickets are issued.”

The Town will be further inviting area growers and operators to an information session in the near future to go over the by-law requirements and expectations for both lighting and odour offences.
