Accessory Dwelling Units: Case Studies and Best Practices from BC Communities
To address the current, timely needs and interests of small- and medium-sized communities wishing to scale up the provision of accessory dwelling units (ADUs), we researched and wrote a report and guide: Accessory Dwelling Units: Case Studies and Best Practices from BC Communities, which has just been released. This guide provides an overview of the practices (policies, bylaws, initiatives, etc.) currently implemented in BC, including benefits and risks to each approach, and a detailed description of each practice including implementation options, administrative requirements, favourable conditions, advantages and disadvantages. A vignette that showcases the ADU practice used by a specific municipality is included in each section.
