What is an Encroachment?

An encroachment is defined as being any portion of a building, structure, fence, parking, driveway, etc. which extends onto Township property.

Clearview Township has established a Corporate Encroachment Agreement Policy for processing encroachment applications and enforcing encroachment agreements.

Application and Approval Process

A property owner shall submit the completed Encroachment Application Form along with the required fee to the Clerk’s Office. The encroachment application form will then be circulated to applicable Clearview departments for comment. The application will be assessed for any concerns addressed by staff. The Clerk’s Office will prepare a report and by-law for Council’s consideration.

Application does not necessarily mean an encroachment agreement will be granted.

Subject to Council approval, the property owner shall enter into an encroachment agreement with the municipality.
