In response to changes to the Planning Act, and as part of Clarington's Affordable Housing Toolkit, municipal staff are drafting Official Plan and Zoning Bylaw Amendments. These amendments will increase permissions for Additional Dwelling Units (ADUs), also known as secondary suites, in-law suites, basement apartments, and in-house apartments.
Subject to certain conditions, one ADU will be permitted within a house, and another ADU will be permitted within a detached accessory structure (such as a garage) on the same property.
These ADUs will be allowed in urban and rural areas, with some limitations for properties within the Oak Ridges Moraine.
A Statutory Public Meeting will take place on September 13, 2021, with more details to follow.
