Neighbourhood Infill Development


The Neighbourhood Level Infill Development Strategy is one component of a Comprehensive Plan for infill development within built up areas of the city. The Infill Strategy addresses small scale infill opportunities on individual residential lots, with a scope directed to an assessment of established neighbourhoods within Saskatoon, defined as neighbourhoods located inside Circle Drive, as well as Sutherland and Montgomery Place.

The City has implemented two items identified in the Strategy:  regulations to allow for garden and garage suites and regulations for primary dwellings.  

Garden and Garage Suite Regulations

Garage and garden suites are small stand-alone dwelling units constructed in conjunction with a detached garage, or as an accessory structure. Proposals for these forms of development will require discretionary use approval, on an individual project basis.
