The Property Standards By-Law (By-Law 106-2016) sets minimum standards for maintenance and occupancy for property within the Town of South Bruce Peninsula.

Members of the public can make a complaint about a Property Standards violation by sending a written or typewritten letter to the Town Property Standards Officer.  The letter must be signed by the person making the complaint.
