The Township of North Huron has a Property Standards By-law and a Yard Maintenance By-law which sets out the minimum standards for building and property maintenance. Standards prescribed in these By-laws are intended to outline the reasonable minimum maintenance and upkeep of yards, buildings and properties.
These standards are not meant to apply to construction work taking place on a site where permits are issued and work is actively taking place. However, the Township does recognize the importance of maintaining existing buildings. These standards are put in place to protect the health and safety of occupants and the public.
If you have concerns about a property standards issue or yard maintenance a formal complain would be required. Complaints of Non-Compliance must be submitted to the Building Department on the prescribed form and submitted to the Municipal Office during regular business hours from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday.
Note: Complaint forms may be used as evidence in a court of law should this matter proceed to that level.
