[ARCHIVED] Garden Cottage Program Begins

Garden Cottage Program Begins
Program provides designs to build accessory dwelling units


Beginning Monday, August 31, 2020, the Town of Danville has begun the Garden Cottage Program, which will allow residents access to free, pre-approved, permit-ready, printable, construction plans for the building of Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU). 

An ADU is a self-contained living unit that is usually smaller than the main home on the same property. It contains a kitchen, bathroom, and sleeping area.  ADUs can be attached to an existing home or may be a separate detached building.  

Under the Garden Cottage Program, residents can select from a range of ADU plans that will include Studio (640 sq ft), 1 bedroom/1 bath (840 sq ft) and 2 bedroom/2 bath (approx. 1000 sq ft).  These customizable plans, designed by local architects, will be offered in three architectural styles:  Craftsman, Mediterranean, and Contemporary.  

Applicants will need to consult with appropriate design professionals to prepare a site plan and any necessary grading plans. Each project is unique and may require additional approvals and fees from other agencies. Town staff can provide assistance with the application process and advise if additional approvals are required. For permitting assistance, call (925)-314-3330.

More information on the program can be found at: www.danville.ca.gov/gardencottage

For more information, contact Civil Engineering Associate Guillermo Santolaya at (925) 314-3352 or gsantolaya@danville.ca.gov.
