Phase 2: Completed in February 2009

Phase 2 of the Secondary and Garden Suites Zoning Bylaw amendments is complete. As in Phase 1, Phase 2 has involved public consultation with Edmontonians. This included open houses, stakeholder meetings and a web survey. The second phase was completed in February 2009 with the adoption of Bylaw 15036.

Bylaw 15036 incorporates both consultation feedback and improvements to the Phase 1 amendments that address the issues found during the Phase 1 monitoring period.

Bylaw 15036

Bylaw 15036 includes clauses that:

  • Remove the location restrictions for secondary suites, which currently apply in the large-lot residential zones.
  • Modify the location restrictions for garden suites in large-lot mature area zones and apply them to most other low-density residential zones (see Summary Tables:  Phase 2 Secondary Suites Zoning Bylaw Amendments on the right for details). 
  • Introduce at-grade garden suites (single-storey accessory suites, detached from the main house) at the discretion of the development authority.
