Saanich seeks feedback on garden suite proposals

From Megan Squires,Planning Department, District of Saanich:

Garden Suite Study in Saanich: We’re looking for your feedback!

Join us at an open house to learn what we’re proposing for Garden Suite regulations and design guidelines. This is an opportunity to provide your input before the final proposed regulatory framework is presented to Council this summer.

The proposed regulations are based on community input and include requirements for the location, size and height of garden suites, as well as aspects of building design such as roof form, windows, lighting and landscaping.

Hope to see you there!

If you are unable to attend, complete the online survey available from May 4to 31, or fill out a paper copy available at Saanich Municipal Hall (770 Vernon Ave).
