Our two-hour, time restricted parking is in place to limit the number of non-residents who park in residential areas. Residential parking permits provide the City of Kamloops with a record of residents who park on their residential street.
Residential permit holders cannot park their vehicles for more than 48 hours continuously without moving their vehicles. While residential parking permits allow vehicles to remain parked on a street for up to 48 hours without moving, the vehicle, operators, and owners must comply with Motor Vehicle Act regulations and Traffic Control By-law No. 23-30.
Residents should remain mindful that parking on City streets is obtained upon availability of space. Out of courtesy for neighbours, residents are encouraged to park in front of their own residence when space is available.
There is no charge for a residential parking permit.
The property owner is responsible for applying for parking permits. Permits are valid for one year, from January 1 to December 31. Property owners must apply to the City of Kamloops with names, vehicle licence plate numbers, and valid ID which contains proof of residence. Proof of residence can be shown with a utility bill, phone bill, or a driver’s licence that associates the applicant’s identity with the property address.
Visit City Hall at 7 Victoria Street West to pick up your permit.
