How Much Parking Do We Need? Public Meeting on Modernizing Off-Street Parking

City services | November 22, 2021

The City of Mississauga is changing how much parking is needed on a property by updating its off-street parking regulations under the Zoning By-law. These changes will support local business, help deliver affordable housing, respond to climate change, and enhance travel, transit and walkability in our neighbourhoods.

Off-street parking regulations refer to the amount of vehicle and/or bicycle parking required on private and public properties because of new development, redevelopment, building expansion or a land use change. Changes would not affect existing buildings or homes.

Public Meeting Details


A public meeting is being held at Planning and Development Committee to consider the proposed directions included in the City’s Parking Regulations Study; including proposed changes to the City’s parking regulations for private and public properties as a result of new development or redevelopment.

These directions have been revised based on input received from extensive public and stakeholder engagement. Staff will also report on the feedback received and will present preliminary draft Zoning By-law amendments. Tell us what you think!

This study does not include recommendations for on-street parking policies or municipal parking lots.
