Beach Encroachments

Temporary Beach Encroachments

The Township of Tiny is committed to improving access and enjoyment of municipally-owned parks and beaches, while at the same time respecting privately owned property. To this end, the Township implemented a Beach Enjoyment Strategy Tiny (BEST Strategy) in 2017 to address, on a complaint basis, temporary encroachments throughout the Township.

Residents and visitors are reminded that personal items/private property cannot be left unattended or overnight on municipally-owned property. Personal property cannot be stored on municipal property.

This includes but is not limited to the following:​

  • Chairs
  • Umbrellas/tents
  • watercrafts
  • barbeques
  • boat launches/docks/lifts
  • decks/platforms
  • fire pits
  • delineation (physical/invisible fencing)
  • objects restricting access along the shore or pathways

Items left unattended or stored on municipal property will be removed by the Township at the owner's expense.
