Brampton residents reminded street parking not permitted during heavy snowfall


Published November 15, 2021 at 3:33 pm

With winter weather fast approaching, Brampton residents are reminded that street parking is not permitted.

During winter weather events, street parking is not permitted, and by-laws will be enforced in order to ensure snowplows, salt trucks, and emergency vehicles can safely pass.

Additionally, in 2019, City Council approved a motion to dispatch snow removal crews once 5 cm of snow has accumulated, rather than the previous amount of 7.5 cm, to ensure roads are cleared sooner.

Residents are instructed to contact 311 if their street has not been cleared of snow within 24 hours since the snowfall ended.

Service requests can also be made on the 311 mobile app, emailing [email protected], or online.

The City also provides snow removal financial assistance to eligible seniors and homeowners with physical disabilities, for which more information is available online.

“The safety of our residents is our number one priority – that’s why our crews have been working around the clock to ensure we are prepared when winter weather arrives. We all have a role to play in making this season safe and enjoyable,” Mayor Patrick Brown said in a news release.

“Please clear sidewalks of ice, snow and slush promptly, keep your vehicles off the street during winter weather events, and download our 311 mobile app to contact us if you need support!”
