Vancouver Council to vote on Laneway Housing

Vancouver city council will likely approve laneway housing today, which, as Frances Bula notes on her blog "will give 65,000 homeowners in the city’s RS1 and RS5 (single-family) zones the right to build a 750-square-foot house at the back of their lots".

Not all lots can build to the maximum size, however -- the ruling will require that there remain 16 feet of space between the main house and the laneway house. The lot also has to be 33 feet wide at this point.
