Garden Suite Study under way at District of Saanich

From Megan Squires, Planner at District of Saanich Community Planning:  

Hello Garden Suite Study Stakeholders,

am emailing to let you know about the Garden Suite Study, which is
currently underway in the District of Saanich.  The purpose of the study
is to explore community support for garden suites and to investigate
potential regulatory changes to permit garden suites in the future. The
study will take approximately 12 months to complete and will involve
many opportunities for public engagement. I am contacting you directly
in the hopes that you will share this information with your memberships
and networks.

A survey
is now available online ( We will be hosting
two open houses this month and we will be in the community through March and April with information displays at local recreation centres and libraries.

For more information, visit the Saanich page on garden suites:

those interested in being involved, or following the progress of the
study there is a link on the website that allows people to register to
receive updates. I send out information to this list about upcoming
community engagement opportunities, as well as meetings with Council.

Thank you for your time. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me directly.
