Laneway houses are detached single family homes that replace the garage space that was originally available on a property. These houses are allowed by the City of Vancouver in order to increase the density within the Lower Mainland. Laneway houses provide property owners with a great source of additional rental income. They can be built on lots that are zoned RS-1 and RS-5 with a width of 33 feet or wider (approximately 94% of Vancouver’s lots). On a standard lot, laneway houses can be up to 500 square feet and can be up to 750 square feet on a larger lot. They can have 1 or 1.5 floor configurations subject to guidelines on upper story massing, privacy and storage. The property owners must also provide one car spot for the laneway house occupants.
The City of Vancouver offers a step-by-step guide on how to apply for the construction of laneway houses. Please refer to the link below for the guide and for further information:
