Urban Bees & Chickens

urban bees and chickens

Council passed Urban Chickens Bylaw 1341/20 and Urban Bees Bylaw 1342/20 on August 10th, 2020. 


These bylaws outline the conditions permitting chickens and beehives to be retained by residents within town limits for personal use only. There are some differences between Nanton and the regulation and processes of other communities, so please do review the bylaws and documents provided here before setting upon a path.


The survey leading to this work can be found on the Public Participation page.
