Housing Minister Ravi Kahlon has presented a legislative proposal to promote the growth of small-scale, multi-unit housing within the province. The legislation mandates municipalities to change zoning rules to make building townhomes, multiplexes and laneway houses easier.

James and Denny review the new changes and express their opinions on how these alterations will impact density and the real estate market.

This episode will cover BC’s plans to increase home density, small scale multiunit housing, Transit oriented development and what it means, NIMBYSM, David Eby making changes, changes to laneway houses, phasing out public hearings for development, and future changes.
