Mississauga puts restrictions on clotheslines use

July 4, 2014

A new bylaw approved in Mississauga this week will limit how residents use clotheslines on their property.

According to a published report, Mississauga is now one of the few Canadian municipalities that regulates how clotheslines can be used. Montreal also has similar regulations.

The new bylaw says: only one clothesline per home (a second is permitted for homes with a licensed second unit); clotheslines are to be kept in the backyard only; clothesline are not to be more than three metres high; and clotheslines must be 1.25 metres away from the property line.

“We like our canopy of trees in south Mississauga, not a canopy of underwear,” resident Paul Del Grande told the Mississauga News.

According to a staff report for city councillors, 14 complaints about clotheslines were submitted to Mississauga City Hall since 2009.

The Ontario Green Energy Act of 2009 regulates the use of clotheslines in Ontario. It says that municipalities can pass a bylaw addressing clotheslines – but cannot outright ban them.

The motion to the pass the bylaw did not state what the penalty would be for violating the new clothesline requirements.
