Petitioning Cobourg Town Council

Permit the responsible keeping of backyard hens in Residential Areas


 

Allowing hens in Residential Areas would give Cobourg citizens an affordable source of ethically-raised, organic, protein-rich food—eggs—in their own backyards, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions and solid waste, and enriching neighbourhood ecosystems. Maintaining a close connection to our food is a vital part of living a more ecologically sound lifestyle.

Letter to
Cobourg Town Council
Please update the Zoning By-law to permit the responsible keeping of backyard hens in Residential Areas.
