New ADU Rules for County?
By an edhat reader
Do Edhatters know what the new County rules are for adding additional units to a residential property? I own a small rental house in Noleta (unincorporated suburbs near Goleta).
It's on a big lot (1/3 acre) and the house itself is due for major repairs, so this seems like a good time to add another unit if I can afford it.
I'd love to hear if you've had experience with this recently, and if you have suggestions for professionals with advice and planning help.
We're thinking of using modern pre-cut or pre-fabricated structures. Or maybe not. There's also a possibility of a new state-enabled lot split. Just now getting started on this. The County Planning site has some useful documents. I still have many questions.
