A laneway house is a small house at the rear of a lot near the lane and includes both a dwelling unit and parking/accessory uses.

Laneway housing is allowed in all RS single family zones, RT-11/11N, RM7/7N, RM-8/8N, RM-9/9N and RM9A/9AN (see map on page 9).

A laneway house can be permitted in addition to a secondary suite in the main house.

A laneway house can be for family use or rental; strata-titling is not permitted.
