Bylaw Enforcement

Our bylaws are designed to keep our community safe and enjoyable for everyone. Bylaws are created as a way to address issues and concerns of our community.  They are created to protect the environment, public health, safety and to maintain friendly neighbourhoods for everyone.  Learn more about bylaw enforcement in Woodstock. 

Reporting a Concern or Complaint

If you believe someone has violated a bylaw, our Bylaw Enforcement Officers will investigate the alleged violation.  Whether you call our bylaw line directly at 519-539-2382 ext. 3160, come in person to the Engineering/Public Works Office at 944 James Street or you email the Bylaw Department (see email link below) we require the following information in order to investigate your concerns/complaints properly:

  • Your first and last name,
  • Your address,
  • Your phone number, and
  • The address of where the violation is taking place along with all the details of that particular violation.  (If it is for a vacant lot, please give a detailed description of its location).

Anonymous calls or complaints with only partial information will not be investigated.  Your information will be kept confidential.

School Zones

The City of Woodstock School Zone Policy E012 was approved by City Council on November 16, 2017 and adopted to improve the safety of students to and from school due to the congestion created around schools during pick-up and drop-off times.  The policy will make speed and parking restrictions consistent around all elementary and secondary schools.  To read more about school zones  and our policy, please follow the link.
