Notice - Winter Parking and Snow Removal


The Town of Hanover Traffic By-Law No. 1702-04-03-89 has the following two sections under which violations will be enforced by the Hanover Police Service and By-Law Enforcement Officer.

  • It is an offence to park a vehicle on any roadway between the hours of 1:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. during the months of December, January, February and March.
  • It is an offence to park a vehicle on any roadway anytime when such vehicle will interfere with snow removal operations.

Please co-operate with Public Works staff by keeping your vehicle off the street when it appears that snow clearing will be done. Vehicles that make it dangerous or impossible to clear snow may be tagged and/or towed.

Citizens are reminded that the Highway Traffic Act prohibits any person from depositing snow or ice on a roadway. The fine for violation of this offence is $85.00 plus a victim surcharge of $20.00.

Please refrain from depositing snow on public sidewalks as it makes it very dangerous for pedestrian traffic. The fine for violation of this offence is $75.00.

Please ensure that recycling and garbage are placed in a location so as not to interfere with snow clearing operations.

Accessible Parking Permit

If you are an Accessible Parking Permit holder please ensure the expiry date is visible.  If the date is obstructed you may receive a fine of $300.00.

A reminder that downtown parking is only permitted for up to 2 hours. Thank you for your cooperation.
