Secondary Suites

Please be advised that the City of Richmond has adopted amendments to the Zoning Bylaw that allows a single secondary suite within a single-family detached home. However, for a secondary suite to be legal, it must be inspected and upgraded to ensure compliance with the BC Building Code requirements for secondary suites and all applicable City bylaws.

Refer to the following information bulletin and specific use regulations for further information:  Building-22: Secondary Suites
