Draft Public Nuisance By-law

The City of Guelph, with the assistance of Guelph Police Services, is developing a public nuisance by-law. This new by-law will provide by-law and police officers with tools to address minor, unwanted behaviour or activities on City-owned property and, in certain limited cases on private land, without laying criminal charges.

The draft by-law addresses:

  • Activities that endanger the public using City facilities
  • Activities that damage City facilities or land including camping
  • Parties on private property that may affect public safety

Print copies are also available at the ServiceGuelph counter at City Hall.
