Brampton street parking permits are on a temporary hold as crews work to clear snow off city streets.

The city said plows are working to clear arterial, collector and downtown roads after severe winter weather hit Brampton and much of southern Ontario on Monday.

“As snow clearing continues across the city, street parking permits are invalid and parking on Brampton roads is not allowed,” the city said in a statement on Twitter.

The city urged residents to give yourself extra time, leave space around snowplows and travel with care when heading out travel on Brampton roads.

Crews are working to plow and salt arterial roads, collector roads and the downtown core as well as city-cleared sidewalks and walkways. Once those areas are cleared, crews will start on local roads and courts, Mount Pleasant Village, school crossings, transit stops and bus shelter pads.

The parking ban will also allow emergency vehicles to better respond to urgent situations due to the snowfall.

When emergencies take place, every second counts. Don’t park on Brampton roads during snow events, even with a parking permit,” the city said.

City staff are monitoring road and weather conditions and will post updates on Twitter. You can report conditions and make requests for service by contacting Brampton 3-1-1.
