New Rule for New St. John's Homes
There is a new rule for every new home built in St. John's.
Any new residential property will require the developer to plant at least one tree on sites where the building line is a minimum of 4.5 meters.
This new rule takes place effective immediately.
The trees must be planted on the front or side of the property. If the resident can't plant in either of those places, the city may approve planting in the backyard.
