Summerland council to revisit carriage house bylaw

Public hearing on Jan. 28 will consider amendments to regulations.

Summerland’s municipal council will consider changes to its carriage house bylaw, with a public hearing scheduled for the next meeting on Jan. 28.

The municipality’s regulations governing carriage houses were included in the zoning bylaw, which was adopted in September, 2011. Under these regulations, carriage houses must be connected to full urban services. The area, at the time, was limited to 60 square metres and the height of a carriage house located above a garage was limited to 7.5 metres.

The regulations were amended in 2016 and 2017, allowing carriage houses of up to 90 square metres in all lots where carriage houses are permitted.

According to a report from the development services department, the proposed changes will include a requirement that all carriage houses on lots of less than one hectare must be connected to the water and sewer systems, clarification on the maximum floor area of a carriage house, prescriptions for the height based on lot sizes.
