Summer pass returns for residents and taxpayers

The PEC Summer Pass program has been renewed for 2023, and passes for residents and taxpayers are now available.

The PEC Summer Pass program was introduced in 2022 to give residents and taxpayers free admission to Wellington Rotary Beach and to permit parking in designated parking spaces near the water access points at the ends of Bakker Road and Huyck’s Point Road.

How to obtain a pass:
A maximum of two passes can be issued to each County address.
Residents can continue to use their yellow passes from 2022 throughout 2023. If you have your 2022 pass and the vehicle information listed on the pass is still accurate, you may continue to use your pass.
If you no longer have your 2022 pass, or if your 2022 pass no longer matches your vehicle information, you can register for a new one.

Residents can register for and pick up their passes in person at Shire Hall (332 Picton Main Street) during regular business hours (Monday-Friday 8:30 am to 5 pm). Bring proof of residence (photo ID with your County address on it; or, if your ID does not have a County address on it, you must also bring a tax bill, water bill or lease agreement with your name and County address on it).
NEW in 2023: Register online and your pass will be mailed to you. Use the online form to register and pay a $5 shipping and handling fee to have the pass mailed to your County address. You will need to upload proof of residence when you register.

NEW in 2023: Passes will be available at the PEC Library branches on designated dates and times only. Municipal staff will be at the libraries distributing passes on the following dates and times:
Saturday May 20 – Wellington – 10 am – 1 pm
Tuesday May 23 – Consecon – 10 am – 1 pm
Thursday May 25 – Wellington 10 am – 1 pm
Saturday May 27 – Consecon – 10 am – 1 pm
Saturday June 3 – Wellington – 10 am – 1 pm

How to use the PEC Summer Pass:

PEC Summer Passes provide two benefits to residents: 1) free admission to Wellington Rotary Beach on days when admission fees are charged; and 2) the ability to park in designated spaces near the water access points on Bakker Road and Huyck’s Point Road.

WELLINGTON ROTARY BEACH: A $10 admission fee is charged at Wellington Rotary Beach between 9 am and 5 pm on Saturdays, Sundays and statutory holidays in July and August ONLY. The fee is waived for residents who show a PEC Summer Pass.

Admission is free for everyone outside of the dates and times listed above. No pass is required for entry when admission is free.
The first date that a pass is required will be Saturday July 1.

Fees will be waived for every member of your party arriving together by vehicle or on foot.
All beachgoers 16 years and younger are admitted free every day, regardless of whether they have a pass or not.

BAKKER ROAD AND HUYCK’S POINT ROAD: Parking is controlled at the water access points at the ends of Bakker Road and Huyck’s Point Road through seasonal no-parking zones (May 1 -October 31). The PEC Summer Pass exempts residents from a $100 parking ticket when parked in the designated passholder spaces within these zones.
Anyone parking in the designated spaces without a PEC Summer Pass may be fined $100.

The month of May will be a “grace period” and all tickets issued for parking in the designated spaces without a pass will be “warning” tickets without a fine. The first day where a pass will be required to park in these spaces will be June 1. This grace period only applies to parking spots designated for pass holders. All cars parked in other No Parking areas may be ticketed beginning May 1.
If you park in non-designated spaces within the seasonal no-parking zone, with or without a pass, you may be fined $100.

Pass holders must display their pass on their dashboard or rear-view mirror. The pass must be valid: the licence plate number and vehicle make must match the vehicle that is parked.
Availability of parking is not guaranteed. Like all parking areas, parking is available to passholders on a first-come, first-served basis.
