Secondary Suite Rules Relaxed in Calgary?

Just noticed a story out of the city council meeting last night where the council has erased zoning restrictions on secondary suites designated for narrow properties. So what does that mean?

For some reason if doesn’t change anything for older districts that have the nice large lots (the example they use is Haysboro and University Heights) which are more suitable to add secondary suites. It does however affect areas where they cram homes in like Martindale, certain areas of Tuscany, McKenzie Towne, in all about 18% of Calgary homes.

These areas can now have legal basement suites. There are still certain rules to follow, but it cannot be denied due to zoning for these areas now which should take some pressure off landlords hoping to not get reported.

The rest of the story is available on the Herald’s site, Alderman relax suite rules
