It's very important to pay close attention to bylaws - especially when building on your property. Two local bird watchers built an observation tower on their property over two years ago, but the Kawartha Lakes council just voted it will have to be removed. My Kawartha reported, "Coun. Stauble said it would set the wrong precedent to allow the tower to remain when the proper planning path wasn’t followed. Both she and Coun. Junkin had concerns that the viewing tower was too close to the osprey’s nest." Always remember to be vigilant and fully informed before building any structure to avoid issues like this one.
