New BC Regulation (4-Plex & 6-Plex)

Small-Scale Multi-Unit Housing, aims to make it easier to build more housing on properties that were previously only allowed single detached dwellings and/or duplexes. The legislation requires the City to permit at least one accessory unit (e.g. secondary suite) in all single detached dwellings and up to four units on most single detached and duplex lots.

Existing Zoning

The majority of properties eligible for Small-Scale Multi-Unit Housing have existing zoning that permits a single detached dwelling with a secondary suite.

Proposed Approach

This is The City is exploring enabling up to a maximum of four dwelling units per property, subject to existing zoning regulations (e.g. building setbacks, height, lot coverage, and density). This means that new development will look and feel like existing development, but with the possibility of additional housing units within the building.
