Residents, businesses, and local stakeholders invited to provide feedback BRAMPTON, ON
(January 5, 2022) – As the city of Brampton rapidly grows, the way people move throughout the city continues to change. To help improve infrastructure planning, manage parking resources, and support the future needs of residents and businesses, the City of Brampton is conducting its first-ever citywide parking review.
Parking requirements have an impact on affordable housing, development costs and land use planning. This plan will help to better align with the needs of residents and businesses to develop complete, healthy, walkable communities that ensure the needs and safety of all road users are considered and appropriately accommodated.
Through this process, the City will review current challenges and opportunities, and benchmark best practices in other jurisdictions. The Brampton Parking Plan will provide guiding principles and recommendations on policies and efficient parking management for the future.Developing the Brampton Parking Plan
