Change Amherst NS land use bylaw to allow urban chickens

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

The land use bylaw in Amherst NS is extremely restrictive. My husband and I are very passionate about the growing trend of backyard chickens and we had a coop/small flock of birds  last year and were forced to get rid of it on our near half acre lots in East Amherst. We are angry and bitter, as in many other cities and towns (Moncton, Fredericton, Saint John, Truro, Windsor, Halifax) people are allowed to have hens for household purposes. Hello food security and knowing where your food comes from! I’d like to gain as much support as possible through this petition in order to present it to town council. We would like to be allowed the right to use our property to house backyard chickens. Please help!
