Victoria secondary suite program reviewed

The grant provides a homeowner with up to 25 per cent of their construction costs

Since Victoria city council introduced incentives to build secondary suites, in March 2009, it has doled out $155,000 in grants.

The pot remaining equals $95,000. The grant provides a homeowner with up to 25 per cent of their construction costs. In total, 66 applicants have been approved.

At a governance and priorities meeting last Thursday, Coun. Lisa Helps suggested an incentive also be offered to homeowners for building garden suites. She gave a notice of motion to follow at a later date.

In response, Coun. Geoff Young encouraged her to read the minutes from the meeting at which council debated this issue and decided against it.
