Consultation Meetings: Expanding Permission for Laneway Suites in Toronto
A laneway suite is a separate residential unit in a building located on the same lot as a detached house, semi-detached house or townhouse, but generally in the backyard, and next to a public laneway.
As of August 2018, the City of Toronto has allowed the construction of laneway suites in the Toronto and East York areas of the City, subject to some criteria.
The City is now reviewing the possibility of allowing laneway suites across the City.
How can I be involved?
In May of this year, the Toronto City Planning Division is hosting a series of drop-in consultation meetings to discuss the proposed expansion of laneway suite permissions. At these meetings, City staff will be on hand to answer questions and provide information about the expansion being considered. Please feel free to stop by any of these meetings at your convenience.
Toronto and East York: May 1, 2019 – 55 John Street – Metro Hall (Room 308/309) – 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
