Vancouvers Missing Middle Housing Explained:

As Vancouver grows and evolves, it needs to ensure that there are housing options that meet the needs of the diverse households that live and work here, including more "missing middle" housing options. *This is a great 7 minute video

add more missing middle housing, the city are exploring changes to allow multiplexes (buildings up to six units on a single lot) in low density neighbourhoods across the city. Currently, only a limited range of housing options are allowed in these areas, including houses, laneway houses and duplexes.

In addition, current regulations and the permitting process to build new low density housing are complicated and inefficient. The city are exploring changes to simplify the rules in order to create capacity for new options like multiplexes and to help make it easier to build new housing.
