▪️City Planning Committee delays decision on secondary dwellings. The proposal would have limited the size of the unit and the number of bedrooms. Advocates of the plan want to keep secondary dwellings – that is, adding an extra apartment or basement suite to an existing single-family house – limited in use, for family members, guests, and the like. They worry that single family neighbourhoods will eventually become full of renters. Housing advocates say secondary dwellings are needed to increase the number of homes available, and maybe help drive the price of rent down.
