City of Vancouver - Zoning Districts

RS-1A One-Family Dwelling District - The intent is to maintain the single-family residential character of the District, but also to conditionally permit in some instances one secondary suite or additional dwelling unit in a single-family residence.

RT-2 Two-Family Dwelling District - The intent is to permit two-family dwellings and to conditionally permit, in some instances, low density multiple-family housing.

RT-5, RT-5A, RT-5N, RT-5AN Two-Family Dwelling District - The intent is to encourage the retention of existing residential structures and to encourage and maintain a family emphasis. The RT-4, RT4N, RT-5 and RT-5N Districts emphasis is placed on the external design of all new buildings and additions being compatible with the historical character of the area, and on being neighbourly in scale and placement. In the RT-4A, RT-4AN, RT-5A and RT-5AN Districts this emphasis is limited to certain uses or, in RT-5A and RT-5AN Districts, to development seeking density relaxations. The RT-4N, RT-4AN, RT-5N and RT-5AN Districts require evidence of noise mitigation for residential development.

RT-10 Two-Family Dwelling District - The intent is to encourage development of multiple small houses and duplexes on large lots and assembled sites, while continuing to permit lower intensity development on smaller sites. Siting and massing is intended to be compatible with, but not the same as, pre-existing single family development. Retention of older character buildings and high quality architectural design of all new development are encouraged.

RM-1, RM-1N Multiple Dwelling District - The intent is to encourage development of courtyard rowhouses on larger sites while continuing to permit lower intensity development on smaller sites. Siting and massing is intended to be compatible with, but not the same as, pre-existing single family development. High quality architectural design of all new development is encouraged.

RM-2 Multiple Dwelling District - The intent is to encourage development of courtyard rowhouses on larger sites while continuing to permit lower intensity development on smaller sites. Siting and massing is intended to be compatible with, but not the same as, pre-existing single family development. High quality architectural design of all new development is encouraged.

RM-4N Multiple Dwelling District - The intent is to permit medium density residential development, including a variety of multiple dwelling types, to encourage the retention of existing buildings and good design, and to achieve a number of community and social objectives through permitted increases in floor area. The RM-4N District requires evidence of noise mitigation for residential development.
