Parking Regulations Study

About the project

The City of Mississauga is reviewing and updating off-street parking regulations in the City’s Zoning By-law. The Parking Regulations Study is as a key action from the City’s recently approved Parking Master Plan and Implementing Strategy (PMPIS).

Parking is an important part of shaping how Mississauga looks, moves and functions. It directly impacts how the city is built, transit usage and active transportation. The Study focuses on establishing the amount of privately-owned parking (e.g., in parking lots within apartment buildings, retail plazas, office buildings, warehouse or industrial buildings) that is to be provided as part of any development application or when a new business is created in the City. The Study will not be examining parking on public streets which will be the subject of a separate study.

The Study will:

  • Develop a neighbourhood-specific “precinct” approach to assessing parking requirements for development applications
  • Investigate current and anticipated parking demand and usage rates, transit investments, travel patterns, development trends and proximity to different modes of transportation
  • Ensure parking zoning regulations align with land use and travel patterns and consequently decrease the number of requests by landowners for reducing parking through rezonings and minor variances
  • Support a balanced transportation system including public transit, walking and cycling
  • Align with the City’s intensification, affordable housing and urban design policies
  • Reflect the City’s visions and objectives in Mississauga’s Official Plan, City’s transportation strategies, and regional and provincial policy directions.
