City of Quinte West By-law Enforcement, as part of Building Services in the Planning and Development Service Department, monitors, regulates and enforces parking activity in the City through the administration of City of Quinte West Parking By-law 12-124 (Consolidated) which details restrictions on where and when parking is permitted on all city streets.

Street Parking

On-Street Parking - Residential Areas (No Meters)

There are no parking meters on City streets except in the Trenton ward Downtown Core.  On-street parking is available in residential areas subject to restrictions regulated by By-law.  Areas with parking restrictions are clearly signed.  When parking, you are urged to be aware of and to read on-street parking signs carefully to determine if and when parking is permitted as the streets are signed accordingly.   Vehicles that are parked in contravention of posted signs will be ticketed.

Winter Restrictions

To ensure snow clearing operations can be completed effectively and efficiently, winter parking / overnight parking restrictions are in effect from December 1st of any year to March 31st of the following year. Snowplow operators try to ensure that City streets are plowed back to the curb, but obstructions such as parked cars, make this impossible. To avoid receiving a parking ticket with a minimum fine of $75.00 and/or having your vehicle towed, please be aware of when Parking Restrictions are in effect, and that parking is prohibited on all city streets, roads and municipal lots between the hours of 11 PM and 6 AM during this time.

Please help us keep the streets clear and safe for everyone!

Wheelchair Parking SymbolAccessible Parking

Parking spaces designated with a wheelchair symbol are reserved for persons with a registered accessible parking permit.  The Accessible Parking Permit (APP) is issued to an individual or company and entitles the vehicle in which it is displayed to be parked in a designated Accessible Parking space.  For permit issued to an individual, the person to whom the permit is issued must be transported in the vehicle and the permit must be visibly displayed on the dashboard or sun visor when it is parked in a designated parking space.  Individual permit holders may use the permit in any vehicle in which they are travelling.

Designated accessible parking spaces are located throughout the City - on street, in municipal lots and in various private locations.  Accessible Parking spaces are identifiable by the use of the wheelchair symbol painted on the asphalt and posted signs.  All accessible spaces are clearly marked.

The set fine for parking in an accessible space without the proper permits or without the permit properly displayed is a minimum of $300.

To qualify for an APP, the individual must be certified by an APP program recognized health practitioner as having one or more of the following conditions:

  • Cannot walk without assistance of another person or a brace, cane, crutch, a lower limb prosthetic device or similar assistive device or who requires the assistance of a wheelchair
