Safe Setback

Northeastern Manitoulin

In certain terrains, such as rolling hills, in quiet rural areas, and under some climatic conditions, greater distances of 3-5 km (~2-3 mi) are required to protect the health and welfare of neighbors. Any specified setback, however, must be part of a robust set of regulations to also limit noise and protect the environment and landscape. Setbacks should be from property lines to protect adjacent landowners from use restrictions and degradation of their properties.
