Homeowners in Kingston’s east end interested in building a secondary suite in their homes are invited to attend a public information session to learn about the process and general requirements for construction.
In November 2015, city council approved Zoning Bylaw amendments which expanded the areas where secondary suites are permitted within the city. Secondary suites can now be built in certain locations east of the Cataraqui River when constructed in accordance with applicable Zoning Bylawprovisions and Building Code requirements. The expansion of the secondary suites program supports the City’s affordable housing initiatives outlined in the 10-Year Housing and Homelessness Plan and is consistent with policy and regulatory directions established under the province’s Long Term Affordable Housing Strategy.
In addition to attending the session, homeowners are invited to review the secondary suites information page to learn more about the zoning and Building Code requirements and funding assistance.
