Vancouver expands laneway house initiatives

Good news, everyone!  Vancouver civic government recognizes that the laneway house movement is a great way to add density to our city without sacrificing the character of neighbourhoods.

Yesterday the story appeared in Business in Vancouver, The Vancouver Sun, and on Global News on how the city is planning to increase the number of laneway homes.The Business in Vancouver says

The city has announced that, later this spring, city staff will report to city council with proposed amendments to the program and guidelines to expand the program to other single-family zoned areas.

According to the city’s guide,

Laneway houses are allowed on lots
in RS-1 and RS-5 single family zones

They want to expand the program into more zones.  Plus they are planning to streamline the process and encourage more single-storey buildings.

I hope we will have laneway neighbours up and down our street, and the city will embrace this “new” way of housing that truly reflects our society and our culture.
