Who is eligible?

Permit parking regulations can be installed on most residential streets (at least 50% of fronting properties are exclusively residential) in New Westminster, provided they meet the required criteria.  Permit parking regulations are primarily intended for residential areas consisting of single family and older low density multifamily homes.  The program is not intended to deal with the parking demands of newer high density multifamily residential developments, which are expected to provided adequate on-site parking.

Vehicles exceeding a gross vehicle weight of 5,500 kg or defined as a "Recreation Vehicle" are not eligible for Residential Parking Permits.
