City of Vancouver to Recommend Family-Friendly Housing Policies for New Strata & Rental Buildings

The city of Vancouver says it will be submitting a report to Council next week that recommends new measures designed to increase the number of family homes in new strata and rental buildings.

New policies outlined in a staff report to council would alter the housing mix in new strata buildings and rental buildings by increasing the number of two and three bedroom apartments to create more options for families.

In a statement, Mayor Gregor Robertson says this move would “help make our neighborhoods more family friendly and vibrant, and… as Vancouver grows, families can find housing options that work for them.”

The policy proposed includes a minimum requirement of 35% family units in new condominiums, as well as a minimum target of 35% two and there bedroom family units for secured market rental buildings.

The policy would apply to rezonings city-wide and would supersede existing family housing requirements. Vancouver’s current policy aims for only 25% two and three bedroom units in new strata’s and rentals.

Council will meet July 13th, 2016 to vote on the proposal.
