City Council adopted changes to the Housing Choices Program in July 2019. See the Housing Choices Summary Guide below to understand what the changes mean for your property.
The City of Coquitlam’s Housing Choices Program was adopted in 2011, with the goal of providing new small-scale, ground-oriented housing options in some residential areas of Southwest Coquitlam.
The program exists within the “Neighbourhood Attached Residential” land use designation in the Citywide Official Community Plan (also known as “Housing Choices areas”) and permits a wide range of housing options, ranging from backyard suites, narrow-lot single family homes, duplexes, triplexes, fourplexes and multiplexes. In the Zoning Bylaw, the RT-1 “Infill Residential” and RT-3 “Multiplex Residential” are the zones associated with the Housing Choices Program.
The following table outlines options that apply to properties with the land use designation “Neighbourhood Attached Residential” (NAR) in the Official Community Plan (OCP).
