SECOND SUITES / LANEWAY PROJECT
Second Suites are self-contained residential units which are generally allowed in single detached, semi-detached and townhouses. They are also allowed in ancillary structures (i.e. Garage, laneway house or garden suite). Many clients add a secondary suite to their basement or above a detached garage (laneway project) to create additional revenue. However, most existing properties will require modifications to incorporate the requirements of a secondary suite. We are here for you in developing a new or legalizing an existing secondary suite, including a laneway project.
STOP WORK ORDER / REMEDIATION
Construction work that was not applied for or not part of the building permit can receive a Stop Work Order from the city. Besides this, a Stop Work Order always involves non-compliance with city’s regulation and by-laws. Residential Permit plans can help with compliance to lift this Order and remediate on our clients behalf.
Many mistakenly treat deck projects to be simple but they are not. Zoning bylaws and building code regulations dictate the allowable deck construction in most homes. We can help determine if your deck project is feasible, prepare the design and acquire the needed approvals from the local authorities.
Committee of Adjustment / Minor Variances
A minor variance is a minor change to a performance standard under the Zoning By-law, granted by the Committee of Adjustment. The Committee of Adjustment is the body authorized to hold public hearings and makes decisions on applications for minor variances to City zoning bylaws and land severances. A minor variance can allow bylaw change in height, setbacks, coverage, parking requirements, etc.
