Parking - Residential Properties

Overview

Pickering's Zoning By-laws sets the standards for the types of vehicles permitted to park on residential properties.

What you should know?

Generally, residents are allowed a maximum of 4 vehicles on their lot. A trailer is counted as one of these 4 permitted vehicles. Only 1 trailer is permitted on each residential lot.

Vehicles parked in a fully enclosed building or structure do not count as part of the 4 vehicle maximum.
