Affordable Rental Housing - Cottages

Correspondence, Staff Reports, Bylaws

 Background Materials

     
At its September 27, 2018 meeting, the Salt Spring Island Local Trust Committee (LTC) gave Bylaw 512 first reading. Bylaw 512 proposes to rezone 405 Rural-zoned properties to a new Rural zone variant that would permit affordable rental cottages instead of seasonal cottages. Draft Bylaw 512 requires that affordable rental cottages are rented and that a covenant prohibiting subdivision be registered on title. Properties with an area of 2 hectares or greater would be allowed an increased floor area of 90 square metres, while properties with an area between 1.2 hectares to less than 2 hectares would be allowed cottages with a floor area of 56 square metres.  

This project was initiated by the LTC in response to a demonstrated need for affordable housing. The purpose of this project is to increase the supply of affordable rental housing in accordance with policies in the Salt Spring Island Official Community Plan.
