The Committee will devise a plan, including recommendations for the potential development of safe, cost-effective, and manageable options for ATV enthusiasts. The Committee, made up of local ATV enthusiasts, has been in place since September 2018 and meets regularly in collaboration with Town staff and Council.

ATV Pilot Project

The Town of Conception Bay South announced in its 2024 Budget Speech the initiation of a potential ATV pilot project, allowing all-terrain vehicles on specific town roads. The project aims to designate a route within the town as ATV-friendly, following similar initiatives by other towns across the province.

The first step in this process involves the development of the Town’s Recreational Vehicle Regulations, which are currently underway. Once the Regulations receive approval from Municipal and Provincial Affairs, public consultation on the proposed pilot project will be conducted. Community feedback will be used in making final decisions on the pilot project to permit legal ATV use on designated roads within Conception Bay South. Meanwhile, the Town is actively engaged in identifying potential roads for the project.

ATV Documents

A Crown Lands Application – License to Occupy, for an ATV route, was submitted in 2022. The application is currently registered and under review. The route can be viewed on the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador Land Use Atlas. Feedback on this application can be e-mailed to, citing application #160169.
