How the District of North Vancouver built community acceptance for the legalization of secondary suites in single family neighbourhoods( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This case study describes how the District of North Vancouver built community acceptance for the legalization of secondary suites in single family neighbourhoods. Secondary suites meet a market requirement for low-rent housing, they are a form of urban intensification and they address various needs (mostly financial) of home owners. In spite of these benefits, there is real and perceived community resistance to secondary suites. This opposition is built upon apprehensions that suites adversely affect neighbourhood quality of life and that the people who inhabit them may not be the kind of folks you want living next door. After unsuccessful efforts to close down secondary suites, the municipality decided to try a different approach. The District exposed and deflated the misperceptions of residents and suite owners by publishing and promoting four factual documents that: --profiled owners of secondary suites and their tenants showing how they compared to the rest of the population; --analysed the cost factors involved in upgrading existing suites to make them building code compliant, concluding that $10,000 to $15,000 was a typical outlay; --examined the types of complaints the District received about secondary suites as justification for putting appropriate controls in place; and --examined the Provincial building code issues involved. These four documents were circulated to builders and developers and to 22 community and ratepayer groups for comment. In addition, the District staged a televised public forum on the issue to obtain input from the public at large. In the end, the District achieved what it wanted -- widespread community acceptance that secondary suites serve genuine needs and therefore deserve a place in the housing mix. The by-law Council passed in October 1997, to legalize secondary suites in single family zones reflected public input. It demands sufficient space for parking, requires that owners live in the house and that there be only one suite per house. District of North Vancouver officials think their experience can benefit other municipalities. The process they used, particularly the research methodology, could be followed by others. Asked what they learned from their experience that could help others, District officials cite three key points: 1. provide the public with factual information based on solid research; 2. find common ground (in this case, consensus focused on health and safety issues); and 3. adopt a non-punitive approach
