Notice:  Sea Cans

Over the past several weeks, the Town observed an increase in the number of sea cans being placed in residential zones.  Sea cans, as they are commonly called, are essentially metal shipping containers and they can become unsightly if not properly maintained.  As a point of clarification, residents are not required to obtain a permit to place sea cans on their properties; however, section 34 of the Occupancy and Maintenance Regulations, which is copied below, will apply in these cases:

Section 34 (on site storage)

1)The storage of materials or equipment on the site of a building or dwelling unit shall be at the rear of the lot.

2)All items shall be neatly arranged and shall not cause inconvenience or imposition to adjoining properties.

3)Storage space on corner lots shall be screened.

Residents are required to ensure the sea cans satisfy section 34 of the Occupancy and Maintenance Regulations.  They must also ensure the sea cans are properly maintained.
