Calgary gives homeowners a break on illegal secondary suites

Homeowners with illegal secondary suites in Calgary are being given the chance to make them legal without some of the usual costs.

The city council has announced that it has waived the development permit and fee for the next 18 months, from Sep.1 2015 to Mar. 3 2016.

Owners must ensure that their secondary suites comply with zoning and land use bylaws but the reduced cost should help cut the 16,000 illegal suites in the city.
