Can my clients have chickens?

Chickens are becoming a popular land use activity as more people look to their own yards to provide some food security. Before your clients start planning their chicken coop, be sure to check the Zoning Bylaw to ensure chickens and/or livestock are a permitted use on the property. Keep in mind that the zoning bylaw for each electoral area may address chickens differently - in some areas such as Electoral Areas A (Mill Bay) and C (Cobble Hill), there are specific regulations for the keeping of chickens while in other zoning bylaws the 'Agriculture' use covers all livestock. Be sure to read through the zone thoroughly and don't forget to check out the definitions at the beginning of the zoning bylaw for additional clarity.
