The Town of Halton Hills has initiated this survey to determine residents’ level of interest in keeping backyard chickens. This survey considers permitting backyard chickens in the following areas: urban residential areas (Acton, Georgetown), hamlets (Glen Williams, Norval) and rural clusters (Ashgrove, Ballinafad, Bannockburn, Crewson’s Corners, Henderson’s Corners, Hornby, Limehouse, Silvercreek and Terra Cotta).

Currently, the Town of Halton Hills Responsible Pet Owner’s By-law 94-077 restricts the keeping of chickens only to properties that are zoned as agricultural.

Results of this survey will be used to gauge the level of community interest and solicit feedback on other related issues. A staff report detailing the results of the survey and recommendations is anticipated for May. Should Council determine that backyard chickens will be allowed in the areas as noted above, staff will hold further consultation and public education opportunities with the community to determine policies and restrictions.
