Infill Housing

Esquimalt has established guidelines for infill housing in residential areas.

Infill housing is sometimes referred to as Small Lot development; however, Esquimalt does not have a Small Lot Zone. Instead, the municipality may rezone parcels to Comprehensive Development Zones, which may permit a smaller parcel size and reduced setbacks than are permitted in Single Family Residential Zones.

Comprehensive Development Zones can only be created through the rezoning process and with neighbourhood consultation.
