Parking Permit

Chatham-Kent has a wide range of parking regulations designed to provide safe streets and better traffic flow throughout our municipality.

Permits must be displayed so the complete face (opposite side) is visible from the outside of the vehicle. Failure to do so may result in the issuance of a parking infraction notice.

Duplicate permits or those reproduced in any manner are invalid. The use of modified permits may result in the loss of parking privileges.

Replacement of a lost or stolen permit will require a payment of $5.00.

If the parking permit is not renewed after one month of expiration, your space may be reassigned to another customer on the waitlist or on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Please advise Customer Services of any changes to your vehicle(s) information by calling 519-360-1998.
