Parking Regulations

Parking on Roadways
Parking on Roadways

The Township of North Kawartha passed a comprehensive Parking By-Law #50/08 in 2008. This by-law was passed to help reduce traffic congestion in the village of Apsley and to assist in the delivery of road maintenance and Emergency Services to our residents and visitors.

This by-law forbids the parking of any vehicles on any Township road or right of way regardless of the season. The winter snow plow turnarounds are particular problem areas. If the snow plow can't get turned around, the road will not be plowed. These areas have been signed as a reminder to place vehicles off the roadway and into driveways or other cleared areas.

All parking restrictions within the jurisdiction of Peterborough County stated in Peterborough County’s Parking Regulation By-law No. 2023-26 are in effect. Violators may be ticketed and/or towed.

Please view By-law No. 2023-26 to understand the restrictions.

Your vehicle may be tagged or towed away if you are in violation of either by-law.
