Questionnaires and Surveys

Tay Township collects input from residents and others for use in formulating policies, services and by-laws.

Current Surveys

Tay Township is in the process of gathering information for the potential of permitting temporary shelter structures in Tay Township.

Temporary Shelter Structures Survey

A temporary shelter is any temporary structure with or without side panels, the covering of which is made of pliable material, such as plastic or fabric, that achieves its shape by air support, air inflation, or tension.  Structures are often called portable garage, carport or shelter.

The current Township policies consider these types of structures as accessory structures and they must meet the zoning by-law requirements for accessory structures, which is the same as a detached garage.

We want to hear from you! Please fill out the survey to help guide direction for permitting temporary shelter structures in Tay Township.

The survey is open to all residents, stakeholders and community members. You can also pick up a hard copy of the survey in the vestibule of our municipal office at 450 Park Street, Victoria Harbour during regular business hours Monday to Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The survey will close on July 24, 2024.
