Winter Parking Advisory

Please help us keep Town streets free of ice and snow by ensuring your vehicle is parked off-street during winter storm and snow removal operations. The Public Works Department can do the job more efficiently if your vehicles are not left on the street during this time.  Please arrange off-street parking locations during snow clearing and salting operations. The Town of Lunenburg operates several parking lots where overnight (5:00 p.m. – 8:00 a.m.) parking is permitted for a fee ($35.65 /month HST included).  Parking passes may be purchased at the Lunenburg Town Hall, 119 Cumberland Street (902-634-4410). 

In the Town of Lunenburg the RCMP enforce the Nova Scotia Motor Vehicle Act winter parking ban which:

  1. Prohibits parking or leaving a motor vehicle, whether attended or unattended, on any street that might interfere with or obstruct snow removal, or winter maintenance;
  2. Authorizes a Police Officer to have a motor vehicle moved or towed to some other place if it interferes with or obstructing snow removal or winter maintenance; and
  3. Provides that the cost of moving or towing motor vehicle can be recovered from the owner.   

The cooperation of all drivers is greatly appreciated. For more information, please contact the Public Works Department at 902-634-8992, or on our website here.
