Windsor bylaw

Windsor has passed bylaw that will allow laying hens and beehives within the town limits.

People will be allowed to have up to four laying hens (but no roosters) and a beehive on their property, if they follow certain restrictions and requirements.

For beekeepers, they’ll need 5,000 square feet of lot space to put in a hive.

Other Nova Scotia areas have such laws on the books, including Wolfville; Bridgewater, and Truro.
