Brant County seeking input regarding chicken guidelines

County of BrantBrant County seeking input regarding chicken guidelines

County of Brant residents are invited to provide their input on the development of regulations and guidelines for keeping chickens in residential areas, beginning Tuesday, March 13, 2024.

As the County of Brant prepares regulations for the keeping of chickens in residential areas, through public engagement, the aim is to develop regulations and guidelines that balance the interests of residents with the benefits and challenges associated with residential chicken keeping.

“As urban agriculture gains popularity and communities explore sustainable practices, the idea of allowing chickens in residential areas is becoming a reality within the County,” said Greg Bergeron, Director of Enforcement and Regulatory Services for the County of Brant. “Public feedback will play a crucial role in shaping potential regulations for keeping chickens in residential areas and we are encouraging all residents to participate in this important process.”

Key considerations will focus on the development of regulations and guidelines that ensure the responsible keeping of chickens, which address concerns related to noise and waste, animal care and welfare, and overall neighborhood aesthetics.

The County of Brant is inviting residents to attend a Public Information Meeting at the Planning and Development Committee on Tuesday, March 12, 2024 at 6:00 pm inside the County of Brant Council Chambers.

“We encourage those who are unable to attend the Public Information Meeting to provide comments and questions, and to complete the Chickens in Residential Areas survey, available March 13, 2024.”

Engagement closes on Friday, March 29, 2024, at 4:30 pm.
