For safety and aesthetical reasons, the City of Dollard-des-Ormeaux adopted a bylaw concerning fences, whether in a residential, commercial or industrial zone.
Anyone contravening to any provision of Bylaw 623 is liable to a $50 to $2,000 fine when the offender is a natural person or to a $50 to $4,000 fine when the offender is a legal person.
No permit is required for the installation of a fence. However, in commercial and industrial zones, prior approval by the building inspector is required.
General prohibitions and restrictions
Prohibitions and restrictions – residential zone
Prohibitions and restrictions – commercial or industrial zone
In commercial and industrial zones, a plan showing the location, design and materials of proposed fences must first be submitted to the Building Inspector (or of his representative) for approval.
