Share your thoughts on proposed changes to coach houses

Coach houses play an important role in meeting our goal of diversifying housing options. They provide much needed long-term rental housing in neighbourhoods that are close to parks, schools, and other amenities, and that might otherwise be unaffordable.

We're considering a number of changes to simplify the coach house application process, including new or simplified permitting requirements, changes to allowable floor space, revised parking requirements, and more.

Please take a few minutes to review the proposed changes and answer a few simple questions.

Thank you for your interest. This consultation closed on October 14, 2018.
