By-law Enforcement


The Municipality of South Huron's By-law Enforcement team is committed to serving, protecting and providing a desirable quality of life for residents and visitors. South Huron's By-law enforcement department deals with issues such as:

  • Parking Enforcement
  • Licensing and Permit Services
  • Property Standards
  • Animal Services

The By-law department operates on a complaint basis by following the by-law complaint process. When a complaint is received, it is investigated and appropriate action(s) are taken.

You can contact the Clerk's Office at (519) 235-0310 for more information regarding by-law enforcement services.

By-Law Enforcement Officer

At times residents may act in a way that is offensive to others. The Municipal By-Law Enforcement Officer investigates concerns such as noise complaints (e.g. barking dogs, loud music), littering/dumping, fences, portable signs, and other matters that are addressed by municipal by-laws.

Our Municipal By-Law Enforcement objectives are:

  • to increase public awareness of the municipality's current by-laws
  • to assist residents to become more familiar with their responsibilities and rights as property owners or tenants
  • to achieve compliance with our by-laws through education rather than fines

How to make a Complaint

By-law infraction complaints can be submitted in person at the Municipal Office located at 322 Main Street South, Exeter. Complaints can also be submitted using the online Report It form. The Municipality requires a written complaint with contact information for follow-up. Depending on the nature of the offence, you may be asked to provide evidence and/or to appear as a witness in any court proceeding pertaining to the complaint made.
