Under Bylaw 2400 (the zoning regulation that applies to the all TNRD electoral areas), low density residential zones allow only one detached dwelling per parcel or property. Generally, this dwelling is allowed to have a secondary suite and in some cases this may be a duplex or two family dwelling.
That said, there are two circumstances whereby a “second” detached dwelling may be allowed under certain conditions. Second dwelling permits may be issued for full time farm employees or for residential care purposes, if and as certified. Please see the FAQ Sheets below and Zoning Bylaw No. 2400 (the full zoning regulation) for more details:
Additional Dwelling Application
An application for an additional dwelling for agricultural or horticultural use (farm tax status required).
Temporary Dwelling Application
An application for a temporary manufactured home for person care or maintenance of the owner or occupier (physician certification required).
