BRAMPTON, ON (April 27, 2021) – The City of Brampton has strengthened rules for contractors who perform driveway paving work on private properties to help create safer homes and a safer community.
New this year, contractors and driveway sealers are required to complete online training with the City before being licensed. A security deposit is now mandatory for contractors. These pre-requisites for licence issuance and/or renewals are significant steps towards mitigating illegal construction on driveways.
When the Provincial stay-at-home order is lifted, By-law and Enforcement Services staff will resume investigations of driveway installations or expansions that do not comply with the City’s various by-laws.
Residents planning to widen their driveway to add more parking space, add paving stones or reseal their driveway are asked to keep the following tips in mind:
- Check that a contractor is licensed by the City of Brampton. A list of licensed contractors is available online.
- For DIY projects, check with the City to confirm the maximum permitted width of a driveway and if a curb cut permit is required.
- Trained individuals must be on site during driveway paving.
Both contractors and residents are responsible for ensuring that construction is in line with City by-laws and legal.
