Calgarians to benefit from streamlined secondary suite application process
On March 12, 2018, City Council approved amendments to the Land Use Bylaw to allow secondary suites as a discretionary use within R-1, R-C1, and R-C1L land use districts. Council also directed Administration to return with new rules for backyard suites in these districts before the end of 2018.
Now, instead of applying to Council, home owners will file a development permit with the planning department. Applications will be reviewed by planning staff and a decision made based on its planning merits and whether it follows the requirements for secondary suites. Community
