B.C. SET TO RELAX THE RULES ON SECONDARY RESIDENCES ON ALR

In 2019 the BC Government bought in legislation to limit the size of residences on farm land to halt the building of so-called “Mega Mansions’ Another part of this legislation was the necessity for farmers to get permission from the Agricultural Land Commission to build secondary residences on their land.

The changes propose that secondary residences be allowed on ALR land but they cannot be more than 1000 sq ft. However, there would be more flexibility for use including being able to use the secondary home as rental accommodation. This is great news for farmers!

It is proposed that the maximum size of primary residences will remain at 5,400 but secondary residences will no longer have to be mobile or manufactured homes.
