Background – Temporary Zoning By-law
The City of Mississauga has introduced a temporary Zoning By-law to allow patios in Business Improvement Areas (BIAs) and other areas where restaurants have direct street frontage and at restaurants located at malls that have their own access. The by-law allows strip mall-based restaurants to use parking areas to accommodate patios, where mall management permits. Restaurants who wish to use the city sidewalk or a public street would need city approval and obtain a modified minor encroachment permit. A patio design guideline and minor encroachment permit application will be available soon.
Patios will only be permitted upon the Government of Ontario providing approval for Mississauga to enter into Stage 2 recovery and meeting all COVID-19 guidelines from Region of Peel Public Health. All patios, temporary or permanent, will continue to be regulated by the Nuisance Lighting By-law (262-12), Nuisance Type Noise By-law 785-80 and the Property Standards By-law 654-98.
