Can a laneway house be built on a duplex lot?
Called me about HomesWithSuites.ca asking me what it was all about then asked how much would it cost to build a suite?
Specifically a laneway house. Could she build a laneway house on her duplex lot? She owns 1/2 of a back to back duplex.
I confirmed with Vancouver City Hall that laneway houses are permitted only on RS-1 and RS-5 single family zones of minimum 33' wide lots with lane or lane dedication.
A duplex lot (RT zoning) does not fit the guidelines for city approval to build a laneway house.
