Connecticut has recently made some significant updates to the regulations surrounding Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs), aiming to streamline the process for homeowners. The state has essentially set a new baseline for what’s allowed, making it easier for folks to add these smaller, secondary homes on their property. This move is designed to increase housing options and flexibility, allowing for things like granny flats, in-law suites, or rental units right in your backyard. While each town in Connecticut can still tailor these rules to fit their local needs, the overall direction is towards greater acceptance and encouragement of ADUs.
This document, using information from Halloran Sage, gives vital information on which towns in Hartford County and across Connecticut will be permitting ADUs, and what particular restrictions or changes each town is introducing.
