Minimum Parking Space Rates (Sec. 101)

101.

(1)

Off-street motor vehicle parking must be provided for any land use at the rate set out in Table 101 below. In addition, visitor parking must be provided in accordance with Section 102.

 

(2)

For the purpose of this section, 0.5 metres of fixed bench seating is equivalent to one fixed seat.

 

(3)

Despite subsection (1), where a shopping centre provides a dedicated, clearly delineated bus loading area on the shopping centre site, the parking required by Table 101 may be reduced by 25 parking spaces for each bus loading area so provided.

 

(4)

Where a lot is located within 600 metres of a rapid transit station identified on Schedule 2 of this by-law, the minimum required motor vehicle parking rate is reduced where specified in Table 101. The 600 metre distance is measured as the shortest perpendicular distance between the lot lines of the lot containing the use and the centre of the rapid transit station platform.

 

(5)

Despite subsection (4), where the lot is separated from the rapid transit station by a highway, grade-separated arterial roadway, railway yard, watercourse, private lands or any other major obstacle such that the actual walking distance to the rapid transit station is increased to beyond 800 metres, the reduced minimum parking rate specified in Table 101 does not apply and the standard parking rate for that use applies instead.

 

(6)

Despite subsection (1), where all parking spaces provided or required for a permitted land use are located below grade in the same building as that land use, the parking required by Table 101 for that land use may be reduced by 10% to a maximum of 20 spaces.

 

(7)

Where an existing use is non-complying with respect to the parking rates outlined in Table 101, refer to Section 114 (Parking Credits).

 

(8)

Despite subsection (1), where a restaurant use operates in combination with a drive-through facility, the parking required by Table 101 for that land use may be reduced by 20% and where any other use operates in combination with a drive-through facility, the parking required by Table 101 for that land use may be reduced by 10%. (OMB Order, File #PL080959 issued December 4, 2009)

 

(9)

Despite subsection (1), where a restaurant, bar, place of assembly, place of worship or recreational and athletic facility is located within a shopping centre that is less than 7 500 m2gross leasable floor area, and one or more occupancies of that same use comprise more than 30% of the gross leasable area of the shopping centre, then the minimum required parking for that use will be calculated at the parking rate specified for that use, and not at the shopping centre rate. (OMB Order, File #PL080959 issued June 1, 2010)

 

(10)

In the case of an apartment dwelling, mid rise, high rise and low rise and stacked dwelling, where a dwelling unit has a driveway accessing its own required parking space, additional required parking may be located in tandem in the driveway.  (By-law 2014-292)
