DECORATING TIPS: Economise on counter tops. You can splurge on a solid surface top from The Old Barn and mix it with laminate on the perimeter cabinets. Rule of thumb for area rugs: the front feet of all furniture should always be on the rug. When purchasing furniture, look at two occasional chairs instead of a love-seat. Most guests will prefer their own chair to that closeness of a love-seat. Two chairs will also be more flexible if you need to expand your seating area for more friends. Just like a sweater invokes feelings of warmth and coziness, so does a toss cushion done in a knit. Mix thick cable knit pillows with whimsical printed cushions for some fun!

Bylaw Enforcement Bylaw Enforcement

The Zoning By-law allows certain types of businesses to operate from a home (e.g. accountant, hair dresser, etc.) but there are strict requirements. For example, the business may only occupy a certain percentage of the floor area of the house, only the owner/occupant is engaged in the delivery of the service, signage is restricted and all related parking must be accommodated. These home businesses are sometimes called “home occupations.”

Services Parking over the sidewalk/ curb

Description Keeping neighbourhoods safe is the primary purpose of the Traffic By-Law. This is why there are several rules about how a vehicle is parked in a residential driveway. Vehicles are required to be contained on the driveway and are not allowed to overhang the curb onto the road. Doing this can cause a dangerous problem for traffic. As well, vehicles parked in driveways may not block a sidewalk. This is to ensure that they don’t pose a danger to those using the sidewalk by getting in the way of strollers, wheelchairs and pedestrians and forcing them onto the road.

Trees

ATMOSPHERE / 38

Trees and hedges on your property should be trimmed to avoid overgrowth that may affect safety and block people from walking on the sidewalk and obstruct traffic signs. If a neighbour’s tree is hanging over your property this is a civil issue between you and your neighbour. The Town recommends you speak to your neighbour to address your concerns or seek legal advice, if necessary. If you trim the overhanging limbs causing damage to the tree, you may be held liable.

Land Use Planning

Land use Planning affects almost every aspect of life in the Town. Good planning encourages public participation and leads to orderly growth and the efficient provision of services and resources. Zoning By-Laws regulate land use (i.e. residential, commercial, Industrial, etc.) and development standards for building on a property, including Consent Applications for the separation of land to form a new lot(s) or adjust boundaries. Minor Variance Applications allow variances to the provisions of the Town's Sign By-Law and Comprehensive Zoning By-Law or to expand land uses that have existed prior to the passing of the current by-law. Site Plan Application - All lands within Hanover are subject to site plan control with the exception of Residentlal Development containing 2 units or less. If you are planning to build a new building or addition, you may be subject to site plan control. A building permit cannot be issued and construction cannot begin unless site plan approval is obtained. For a complete overview of planning, please visit hanover.ca/planning.
