Within Urban and Village Reserve Lines

  • When an accessory dwelling is attached to the primary dwelling, the entrances shall be designed:
    • to maintain the character of a single-family dwelling; and
    • to avoid changing the appearance of the primary dwelling to resemble a duplex.
  • An accessory dwelling shall have independent exterior access separate from the primary dwelling. The entrance to an attached accessory dwelling shall not be located on the same building face as the entrance to the primary dwelling.
