Victoria Considers Changing Secondary Suite Rules!

The City of Victoria is considering recommendations to change the current rules for secondary suties, whether putting in a new suite or bringing an existing suite into compliance. This is a great move for the City of Victoria as it will benefit both homeowners and renters, some of these recommendations include:

 

"Staff are recommending removing barriers to development of secondary suites through such measures as allowing secondary suites in duplexes or in small-lot housing, or allowing basement suites on properties that have a garden suite.

 

Council is also being asked to consider programs or events “to provide a safe and welcoming environment” for homeowners to ask questions about developing a suite or what would be required to bring an existing suite into compliance without fear of city inspections or fines."
