The purpose of this proposed bylaw, in general terms, is to amend District of Ucluelet Zoning Bylaw No. 1160, 2013, to update the definitions and regulations within the zoning bylaw as they affect the accessory Bed and Breakfast,  Accessory Residential Dwelling Unit (commonly thought of as a cabin or cottage) and Secondary Suite uses on lands in single-family residential zones including the R-1, R-2, R-4, RU, GH, CD-1, CD-2A, CD-3A, CD-5B, and CD-5C.  Amendment to the regulation of access to off-street parking for single-family homes and the aforementioned accessory uses is also part of the proposed bylaw.  In broad terms the bylaw would clarify the already permitted Bed and Breakfast uses and add Accessory Residential Dwelling Unit as a permitted accessory use in most single-family residential zones.
