Portable Vehicle Shelters No Longer Permitted in Nelson

Notice to Public

Please be advised that effective August 17, 2020, portable vehicle shelters are no longer permitted within city limits. 
Details of this decision by Council include:

1️⃣ Existing shelters that met the rules prior to August 17, 2020, are grandfathered with legal non-conforming status and therefore do not have to be removed unless they are in disrepair. 

2️⃣ Only one portable car shelter per lot that meets the minimum required setbacks of the property’s zoning, will be grandfathered.  

3️⃣ Shelters erected prior to August 17, 2020, not in compliance with setbacks, do not benefit from existing non-conforming status. If a complaint is received about a shelter, (even if the property owner attempts to relocate the shelter to meet the setback) it would no longer be permitted. Setbacks are most often, at least 1.5 metres from each lot line.

4️⃣ Non-compliance can result in a fine of $300.
Questions? Please contact Development Services at or 250-352-8260.
