Restrictive covenants operate in addition to municipal zoning by-laws in controlling the use and appearance of your property. They were implemented by the original Stonebridge developers to maintain consistency among properties in the neighbourhood. This was done in order to preserve the value of the property in the subdivision, and protect our individual investments. The restrictive covenants in Stonebridge apply for a period of 15 years from the time your home was registered. We kindly ask that all Stonebridge residents continue to respect the restrictive covenants even once they have expired for the benefit of the Stonebridge community.
