Domestic poultry ownership

Local government regulations are in place to ensure the keeping of poultry or birds on your property will not have adverse effects on neighbours.

Before getting any birds or poultry, contact us and we will let you know what requirements are in place.

Common factors will include:

  • the size of the property
  • the number of birds or poultry permitted
  • minimum requirements for enclosures, including distances to neighbouring properties
  • likelihood of noise or odour nuisance occurring
  • storage of food
  • maintenance of yard(s) (including disposal of waste products)
