New Westminster should consider laneway housing
Re: City seeks to protect rental housing (NewsLeader, Feb. 8)
Currently there is no zoning within New Westminster which allows for the establishment of laneway houses or granny flats, and no plans for council to even explore this as an option. Why? Is there no money in it? No interested homeowners?
Councillors, stop whining.
If you really care about creating dedicated, well-maintained, community oriented and affordable rental housing, it may be time to take a look at what we already have in our own backyards.
