We’re reviewing the existing Zoning Bylaw to ensure it aligns with the City’s updated Official Plan, reflects current zoning practices and works for you and your neighbours today and in the future. Really, we’re making sure all the pieces fit together to support our shared vision for growth as laid out in the Official Plan through a new set of rules.

To do this, we have to look at each and every property in Guelph—each residential, commercial and industrial property, all City-owned and private property, everything.

That means we are looking at how your property is zoned.

We want to know what works for you, what doesn’t and what you would like to see in the new zoning bylaw.

    We have no street parking on our side of the street and street parking allowed on the opposite side of the street. Our neighbour parks on the legal side at the bottom/across from our driveway which causes us issues getting in and out of our driveway. Often we need to do a 4-5 point turn to get out or back in to not hit their cars. A guest at our house has hit one of their cars accidentally. Last week 2 nurses and an OT missed hitting their car by a fraction. We’ve asked them to please not park there and they laugh. Is there any bylaw about blocking access like this? They moved in a year ago and life was great with the previous owner yet not getting in and out of our driveway is such a frustrating pain. Any ideas what can be done?

    Hello, 

    The Comprehensive Zoning Bylaw Review only addresses private property and does not establish regulations related to on-street parking. 

    The City's traffic by-law does require that vehicles be parked a minimum of 1 metre away from a driveway. You can report an issue on the City's website and By-law staff will be able to help: https://cityofguelph.maps.arcgis.com/apps/CrowdsourceReporter/index.html?appid=bb032c2d08dd435986d5008f2cfa7ab6
