By-Law Enforcement

Working together to build a strong community!

The Town of Hanover is committed to deliver professional enforcement services to help residents, businesses and visitors understand the various Town of Hanover regulatory by-laws, and encourage voluntary compliance through education and public relations in order to foster a safe, healthy and respectful community. This method also saves tax dollars on costly court proceedings. 

Some of the core operational functions of by-law enforcement include property standards, clean yards, zoning, animal control, fences, noise, open air burning, fireworks and parking matters.

By-law Enforcement responds to complaints from the public and other government agencies, however does not respond to civil issues. Once a complaint is received, an inspection is conducted by the Municipal Law Enforcement Officer to validate the complaint. To assist you with the complaint process, violations are to be received by the Municipality in writing. For any incident that is happening right now or that has just occurred (e.g., littering or illegal dumping) or involving public safety or environmental hazards, please immediately contact Dispatch at 519.364.2411 to file a report. Information regarding the complainant is kept confidential, unless the complaint ends up in the court system.
