Parking Consideration

The City of Pickering accepts requests for parking consideration to allow residents or guests to park on the street in excess of 3 hours or between 2-5 am (December 1-March 31).

Parking consideration is granted for special circumstances such as overnight guests, driveway repairs, out-of-town visitors, construction, special functions, etc. The City of Pickering does not currently provide on-street permit parking for residents who cannot accommodate all of their vehicles in their own driveway.

Parking consideration is granted a maximum of 21 days per calendar year, per vehicle license plate. Additional parking consideration requests will only be considered for extenuating circumstances at the discretion of the City. For more information, contact our Customer Care Centre at 905.683.7575.

The exemption provided applies only to the 3 hour parking maximum or 2-5 am parking prohibition. All other parking restrictions remain in effect, including prohibited parking and stopping areas, fire routes and the requirement to remove all vehicles from the street during snow clearing operations.

Under no circumstances is parking consideration granted for commercial, oversize, inoperable or unplated vehicles or trailers.

Please note that there are four steps to obtaining parking consideration. This is Step 1. At the conclusion of the process, you will receive a confirmation number to indicate your request has been received.
