In December 2014, Council directed The City to prepare Land Use Bylaw amendments allowing Secondary Suites in all residential land use districts in Wards 7, 8, 9, and 11.

Secondary Suites include those within a house, such as a basement suite, as well as those separate from a house, such as an above-garage suite or a garden suite.

These proposed amendments would allow a single family home owner to apply for a secondary suite, in locations where not previously zoned (R-1, R-C1, and R-C1L).  The amendments would simplify the application process for these single family home owners by eliminating the need to apply and obtain a Land Use Redesignation.
