The City of Coquitlam adopted changes to the Housing Choices Program in July 2019. The Housing Choices Summary Guide will help you understand what the changes mean for your property.
Coquitlam's Housing Choices Program was approved in 2011, with the aim of creating new small-scale, ground-oriented housing options in specific residential areas of Southwest Coquitlam. See map below.
The program permits a wide range of housing options within this area, ranging from backyard suites, narrow-lot single family homes, duplexes, triplexes, fourplexes and multiplexes. In Coquitlam's Zoning Bylaw, the RT-1 "Infill Residential" and RT-3 "Multiplex Residential" are the zones associated with the Housing Choices Program.
