No Planting on Municipal Right-of-Ways

  • ​As we get closer to planting season, the Chatham-Kent Road Authority would like to remind residents to ensure that they are not planting vegetation in municipal right of ways.
  • As plant life grows taller and fuller throughout the season, it can obstruct visibility as motorists approach intersections.
  • Planting on municipal right of ways close to the roadside ditches can also cause drainage and erosion problems.
  • The Municipality will not be held responsible for damage or loss to vegetation planted on a municipal right of way.
