Parking Regulations

Parking regulations help keep on-street parking available for everyone and ensure the safe and efficient movement of pedestrians, cyclists, public transit and motorists in Surrey.

With this shared use in mind, the City’s planning and design standards emphasize parking “off-street” rather than on-street.

To request parking enforcement in your area, contact parking.enforcement@surrey.ca or 604-591-4352. If you have a general inquiry about our parking regulations, your ticket, or our appeal process, call 604-591-4178. Please note we do not accept any appeals over the phone.

How to Change a Parking Regulation

If you would like to change the parking regulations on your local road, contact the Engineering Department at parking@surrey.ca. A Parking Petition Form with at least 67% support of property owners in the affected block needs to be completed.
