Laneway House One-on-One Information Session
Posted On:
April 10, 2017

Interested in Building a Laneway or Carriage House on Your Property?

City staff are available for 15-minute, one-on-one, appointments to discuss how the laneway and carriage house design guidelines and zoning regulations would apply on your property. Staff would not be able to give definitive answers about what can or cannot be built, but they would be able to raise concerns or opportunities based on the site size and shape of your property, and the placement of the existing house.

Information Sessions - FULL - Wait list only

Meetings will be held at City Hall, downstairs in the Planning Department

Wednesday, April 26 from 5:00pm - 7:00pm

All spots are currently full, but please contact Janet at 604-515-3767 or if you wish to be added to the waitlist.

Note: City staff will not be reviewing house plans or approving permits. Laneway and carriage houses are not yet permitted uses in the city. Formal approval by Council is still required. Staff anticipate presenting the required bylaws to Council in the summer.
