Council recently passed a new Nuisance Abatement Bylaw and Property Maintenance Bylaw. These bylaws set the framework for dealing with nuisance properties and set out criteria for making sure that properties in Ladysmith are maintained to a specific standard. While most property owners maintain their properties to a high standard, a few do not. These bylaws will help ensure that you can enjoy your home and property without being negatively affected by your neighbours..
Specifically, some of the issues addressed in the bylaws are:
When a property becomes a chronic or significant problem, there is now a process to address the issues. The process involves the cooperation of other agencies such as Ladysmith Fire Rescue, the RCMP, social services agencies, Vancouver Island Health Authority, the BC Safety Authority, and others as required.
