In Kingston we have an old by-law that prohibits propane BBQ’s on a balcony above grade. The Propane Storage and Handling Act requires that a propane tank not be within 3 feet of an opening in a building (door, window) and at least 10 feet from any mechanical intake air system (example: window air conditioner). This requirement eliminates most balconies from having adequate clearance to allow a BBQ.
Also be aware that TSSA has informed us that the act has been amended to allow propane to be located on rooftops. see article 126.96.36.199. of B149.2-15 for more information on that one.
Hope this helps.
