Changing Attitudes, Changing Rules

Hamilton’s Committee of Adjustment (CoA) recently approved several SDU applications, signifying a shift in the city’s approach to housing development. The approved applications ranged across various wards, highlighting the wide acceptance and feasibility of SDUs across the city. 
The push towards SDUs is not an isolated event; it forms part of a broader shift towards sustainable and efficient use of land resources, providing affordable housing options, and creating diverse communities. Hamilton City’s new Housing and Sustainability Investment Roadmap prioritizes accelerating the construction and expansion of accessory dwelling units like SDUs.

The Benefits of Secondary Dwelling Units

The advantages of adding an SDU to your property are plentiful:
1. Financial Gains: An SDU provides an additional income stream, especially attractive in today’s uncertain economic climate. Whether you rent it long-term or list it on a platform like Airbnb, it’s a smart way to make your property work harder for you.
2. Increasing Property Value: Adding an SDU enhances the overall value of your property. It’s not just an additional living space; it’s a modern, sustainable, and attractive feature for potential buyers.
3. Flexible Living Arrangements: SDUs offer flexible living solutions. They can provide a private space for extended family, a separate home office, or an area for guests.
4. Affordable Housing: In areas where housing is increasingly unaffordable for many, SDUs provide more affordable rental options.
