Vancouver City Council Amends/Expands Laneway Housing

On June 11 the Vancouver City Council will hold a Public Hearing to consider amendments to the laneway housing (LWH) regulations in the Zoning and Development By-law.

ext2The amendments address impacts on neighbouring properties, provision of parking, livability of the units and length of the permitting process, with the intent of improving the fit of laneway housing into neighbourhoods. Additionally, the proposal includes the expansion of the LWH program to the remaining RS districts to equalize opportunity for laneway housing across all single family areas.

Public Hearing: Tuesday, June 11, 2013, at 6 pm
Vancouver City Hall, 453 West 12th Avenue
Third Floor, Council Chamber
