Widening your driveway may become necessary to accommodate additional vehicles. As the property owner, you may be able to widen your driveway to the property line, subject to Municipal By-law compliance and a permit for the City to cut the curb if one is necessary. A permit fee, shown below, will apply.
This is regulated by the Boulevard Maintenance By-law 6831/08.
Highlights - What You Need to Know
- all driveway widening will need to comply with the applicable City Zoning By-law and the requirements of the Boulevard Maintenance By-law
- for specific details on property boundaries, by-law interpretation and individual driveway widening opportunities, please contact Engineering & Public Works or Municipal Law Enforcement Services
- the City's Boulevard Maintenance By-law 6831/08 regulates any changes made to the municipal boulevard. The boulevard is the thin strip of land between the edge of the road and the adjacent frontage property line, typically being 5 to 6 metres in width
- thought should be given to where people will enter or exit vehicles and where ice and snow will be placed so as not to impact neighbouring properties
