According to the Zoning By-law, a "Livestock operation", means a permanent or semi-permanent facility or non-grazing area where livestock producing at least 10 animal units of livestock are kept or raised, either indoors or outdoors, and includes feedlots and all associated manure collection facilities, but does not include an auction mart. A Small Scale Livestock Operation generates between 10 – 299 Animal Units and a Large Scale Livestock Operation generates 300 or more Animal Units.
When Livestock Operations contain between 10 - 299 Animal Units (AU) and are “P” Permitted in the “AG/AL” zones, a Major Development Permit is required. and When Livestock Operations contain 300 or more Animal Units (AU) and are “C” Conditional in the “AG/AL” zones, a Conditional Use is required.
Download and complete the Livestock Operation Application Form and review the Livestock Operation Application Checklist. A Livestock Operation Application also requires a Letter of Intent to be submitted. Download the Sample Letter of Intent to assist with the application process.
