ILLEGAL SPACE REVIEW
The new council has kept its promise to address the illegal space that has been built in many single family homes.
They have given the first 3 readings (out of 4) of a bylaw to amend the definitions used in the calculation of allowable home size. The biggest change is to not count basement area where the floor is 1 meter below the average level of the ground outside the walls. This will have a big impact on allowable sizes. There will be buying opportunities where homes can be considerably expanded. Call me if you are interested.
The full bylaw package is here>>.
