What size accessory building am I allowed to put up and what are the setbacks?
Accessory building size is limited by the gross acreage of the property in question and is a total of all detached accessory buildings located on the property; attached garages are not considered accessory. A chart showing allowable accessory square footage and maximum building height is provided in the performance standards of each zoning district. Generally, accessory buildings must meet the required principle building setbacks unless otherwise indicated. Read our Accessory Building Fact Sheet (PDF).
