Get permission from your neighbors to use their space

You may need permission to use space in front of a neighbor for your Shared Spaces permit.

What to do

1. Decide if you need permission

For sidewalk use, you must get your neighbor’s permission to use any of the sidewalk in front of them. 

For parking lane use, you must get your neighbor’s permission if more than half of marked parking space is not in front of your storefront. You must get their permission if any of an unmarked parking space is not in front of your storefront. 

2. Get them to sign our Neighbor Permission form

Download the PDF.

Fill out the details and sign the form. You and your neighbor must sign the form.

3. Scan or take a picture of the signed form

Take a picture or scan the signed permission form. Upload this with your permit application.

On the permit application, you will also tell us their name, email, and phone number.
