On-street parking is permitted in most areas of the City of Brandon. Unfortunately when a small number of vehicles constantly occupy the limited number of on-street parking spaces available, others are prevented from using these spaces and are not permitted to visit their original destination point. Parking restrictions as outlined below are generally a result of on-street parking issues.
As with many cities in Canada, the City of Brandon has parking meters located on various streets within primary shopping and business zones within the City. The main purpose of on-street parking restrictions and parking meters is to allow motorists to shop and/or visit their particular venue of choice by providing accessible parking spaces on the street.
The time restraints on parking meters encourages motorists to move their vehicles within a prescribed time frame, thus preventing motorists from abusing parking privileges and allowing for a constant turnover of parking availability for incoming patrons / visitors to a place of business and/or shopping.
Time limits for meters located in the City of Brandon vary depending on their location, anywhere from 1 hour to 2 hour limits. Individual meters have the specific information relevant to the amount of time available for parking as well as the denomination required for each amount of time allotment on the meter. Those patrons requiring more than two hours parking are encouraged to consider longer term parking in parking lots throughout the City.
Vehicles failing to vacate parking spaces within the prescribed amount of time at parking meters are subject to a parking fine under the City of Brandon Traffic By-law No. 5463.
As a result of on-street parking concerns in certain areas of the City of Brandon, vehicles are only permitted to occupy on-street parking spaces for a maximum of 1 or 2 hours as indicated by the parking signs adjacent to the street. The areas in which such parking restrictions have been implemented are a direct result of a very high demand for on-street parking by area businesses or by area residents of which parking meters are not a viable option to control parking.
The City of Brandon Traffic By-law No. 5463 sets out restrictions for such parking restricted areas. Section 35 of the aforementioned By-law provides regulations for “General Standing and Parking Prohibitions” which helps encourage people from parking their vehicles within areas where there is a high demand for on-street parking. The purpose of this section of the By-law is to ensure that the prime on-street spaces in these areas are used for short term visits to destination points, and not long term parking.
The Brandon Police Service By-law Officers are responsible for enforcement of the Traffic By-law No. 5463 utilizing various enforcement tools for this purpose. Should a vehicle exceed the time limit permitted for parking within a prescribed area of the City, the vehicle is subject to a parking fine under the City of Brandon Traffic By-law.
As discussed above, in certain areas of the City of Brandon vehicles are only permitted to occupy on-street parking spaces for a maximum of 1 or 2 hours as indicated by the parking signs adjacent to the street. Where such parking restrictions have been implemented by the City of Brandon, residents in these areas may apply to the City for a parking permit.
Below is a portion of the City of Brandon Traffic By-law No. 5463 which outlines the requirements for residents applying for parking permits within a parking restricted area.
