Pay your parking ticket

Short term parking exceptions

Apply for a street parking exception. You can get a temporary street parking exception if you or a guest needs to park on the street for more than five hours or overnight between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. We will only grant you a maximum of 18 street parking exceptions per licence plate, per year.

If you require a long term parking exception, view our extended parking exemptions.

Parking exceptions terms and conditions

Street parking exceptions allow temporary on-street parking for residents who are having driveway repairs, special functions or out-of-town guests. Parking exceptions provide an exemption to the five hour and no parking from 2:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. by-laws. All other parking by-laws remain in effect.

Ineligible vehicles

Street parking exceptions will not be granted for commercial vehicles over 6.7 m in length or 2.6 m in height. 

Exceptions will not be granted for school buses, commercial coaches, derelict vehicles, unlicensed vehicles (including vehicles with expired validations stickers) or immobile trailers.

Snow clearing

During snow clearing operations, the Town of Milton has the right to suspend street parking exceptions. Parking exceptions obtained online are null and void during snow clearing operations. Your vehicle is never permitted to obstruct snow removal.
