Use of trailers, campers, and motor homes on private property
Parking a camper, motor home, or another type of travel trailer on a vacant piece of property for use as a “weekend getaway” is not permitted in any of the zones within the Township of Puslinch, except in designated travel trailer parks.
Complaints about property standards or building maintenance can include fence, porch, roof or other structures in disrepair.
How to submit a complaint
If you wish to file a complaint about the condition of a property in your neighbourhood, you must submit a written complaint. Any complaints submitted by telephone cannot be accepted.
Fill out the complaint form online with your name, address and telephone number, and description of the complaint. Alternatively you can download a copy of the complaint form to complete and mail to:
Township of Puslinch
7404 Wellington Road 34
Puslinch, Ontario, N0B 2J0
Your name and contact information is required in order for a complaint to be processed by the Township. Your personal information will not be shared with anyone, unless the complaint goes to court and your testimony is required.
Where the Township has determined that a complaint has been filed for a malicious or vexatious reason or as part of an ongoing pattern of harassment, the Township may cease its investigation and close the file.
Complaints about civil matters
The Township is often asked to become involved in matters which we have no legal authority. Civil matters that are not within the Township’s jurisdiction include (but are not limited to):
- private right-of-way disputes,
- trespassing, and
- neighbour disputes over property lines, tree cutting, or fence locations
If this type of matter can’t be resolved between you and your neighbour, you may wish to consult legal counsel.
Severances and Subdivisions of Property
If you’re interested in severing one or more pieces of property to sell, or give to a family member, you’ll need to fill out a Land Severance Application. This is a service provided by the County of Wellington.
