Accessory Dwelling Unit Public Forum in Beverly
March 22nd at 8:47am.
Beverly will host a public forum of Accessory Dwelling Units on Thursday, March 24 at 7:00 PM. Working with the Metropolitan Area Planning Council, Beverly is leading a public process to update its zoning regulations for Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs). Beverly’s current zoning for ADUs has the following requirements and restrictions:
- Residents of ADUs must be related to the residents who live in the primary home
- ADUs must share a common vertical and/or horizontal wall with the primary dwelling unit, thereby preventing the construction of detached ADUs
- The size of the accessory apartment cannot exceed the lesser of 900 gross square or 30% of the gross square feet of the principal unit.
- After the designated occupant of the accessory dwelling unit leaves, the principal homeowner must remove the kitchen built in the ADU within 90 days.
Please see the forum details below:
