Loading Zones

Designated on-street loading zones are sometimes needed in areas with limited parking and loading/unloading options. If your business is in need of a designated on-street loading zone, please review the Loading Zone Rules and Regulations to review requirements and fees associated with establishing a loading zone.

To apply for a loading zone, visit to create an online profile. Once your profile is created, you will need to complete a loading zone application by following the steps below.

  1. Under the Right of Way Section, click “Create and Application”
  2. Read and accept the disclaimer
  3. Click on “On-Street Loading Zone Permit” and complete the application

Once your application is complete, city staff will review and make certain everything is correct before creating an invoice. Once the invoice is created and fees are entered into the system, you will receive an email telling you to log back into the system and pay the required fees to process your permit.

For a map of existing loading zones, please see the maps below. 

If you have questions, please contact Parking Services at [email protected] or call 311 (614-645-3111).
