Adaptable Housing Regulations Are In Effect
Improving Saanich’s housing stock with more accessible and adaptable housing is the reason behind Council’s recent adoption of the Adaptable Housing amendment to the Zoning Bylaw.
The amendment came into effect on June 1, 2004 at which point all building permits issued for apartment buildings with an elevator must comply with the new regulations.
The mandatory and voluntary design features are based on universal design. Once incorporated, these features will improve housing for people as they age, or experience injury or illness reducing their physical mobility. This will have a positive impact on the economic and social lives of Saanich residents.
