Laneway suites are secondary dwellings that can serve as secondary housing suites to increase housing options in communities while preserving the original character of residential streets. This eliminates the need for additional infrastructure since property owners are responsible for utilities such as water, electricity, and garbage removal. Connections to these services are provided through the main street.
Laneway suites offer privacy, making them ideal for multi-generational living, co-habitation for families, and for use as home offices and workshops. This allows for the creation of secondary suites that can be used by in-laws, elderly parents, grandparents, caretakers, adult children, and others, enabling certain neighborhoods to grow while still maintaining their unique character, feel, and look.
