Join the Consultation process on Garden Suites

Posted on March 25, 2021

Residents and stakeholders can start to participate in the consultation process by way of the Garden + Suites Survey. Virtual community meetings to present the Garden + Suites study and to gather input from a variety of residents and stakeholders will begin in April 2021. Further information regarding the community consultation meetings will be provided once dates have been confirmed.

The Garden Suites Study is one of several studies that the City Planning Division is leading to expand housing options in Neighbourhoods. A Garden Suite is an accessory housing unit, usually located in the rear yard, and is separate, or detached from the main house. Garden Suites, like Laneway Suites, are generally smaller than the main house on the lot and function as a rental housing unit.

The Garden Suites Study will review important matters which include privacy and shadowing, protecting trees, sustainability, fire access, parking, and appropriate standards given a variety of residential lot characteristics across the City, among many others.

Additional information about the Garden + Suites study is available at the study website.
