- Rentals should be allowed in low-density transition zones that are near, but not right on, arterials.
- That would mean four-storey apartments and rentals on many streets that are now restricted to single-detached houses.
- Rental apartments proposed along the city’s main arterials no longer have to go through rezonings.
- This could streamline and shorten development time by a year.
Vancouver currently allows essentially three units – a main house, a basement suite and a laneway house – on almost every residential lot in the city.
