Next Stage for Infill

Edmonton Planning Department is contemplating some comprehensive changes to the Zoning Bylaws this year. In fact, between 2018 & 2021, city administration will be doing a thorough overhaul of the Zoning Bylaws. As you know, any changes to the Zoning Bylaws will affect all Edmonton communities.

  1. At the March 13th, 2018 Urban Planning Committee, city administration will present amendments that would permit secondary suites in semi-detached (side-by-side duplexes), narrow built houses and row houses.
  2. In the summer of 2018, city administration will present to the Urban Planning Committee, additional opportunities for semi-detached in RF1, the single detached housing zone that exists here and in most mature neighbourhoods. Currently, semi-detached are permitted on corner lots but proposed changes could permit semi-detached to be built anywhere a single detached house may be constructed.

Please Note:
A test case is coming forward to city council's public hearing on Monday, January 22 at 1:30 p.m. In High Park, an application was made to rezone a corner lot at 15202-108 Avenue from RF1 to RF3 to build 4 units of row housing. In accordance to the Residential Infill Guidelines, row housing can only be built across from a school or park site. This lot is not close to a school and is one block away from a park. Administration states that although High Park does not have a plan, this application retains the neighbourhood's low density. When this application is approved by council, it sets a precedent for row housing on corner lots in all mature neighbourhoods that do not have an ARP. Also, if council approves secondary suites in row houses this spring, a lot could have a total of 8 units! Since many homeowners use their garage for storage, row houses with secondary suites could have 8+ vehicles parked on the street!
