In many communities across BC, there continues to be an increased demand for rental housing and housing diversity. Despite the introduction of policies and zoning that support secondary suites and accessory dwelling units (ADUs), there has been a slow uptake of these housing options. A recent report Accessory Dwelling Units: Case Studies and Best Practices from BC Communities conducted by WCS Engagement and Planning, and BC Housing, examined the main barriers limiting the construction of this built form in B.C.’s small and medium-sized communities.
This webinar will cover leading practices in policy and bylaw amendments, community engagement, and other initiatives to more successfully implement ADUs.
This online event will be of particular interest to planners, local governments and municipal officials looking to better understand tools available to facilitate the implementation of ADUs in their community.
