What are the regulations for accessory buildings?
These vary with each individual zoning district and type of accessory structure. It is best to contact the Planning Department and speak with a zoning specialist concerning the restrictions on your particular property. Generally, there are building separation and setback requirements. Section 52-40 of the zoning ordinance describes some of the regulations on Accessory Buildings, and your property’s zoning district may have additional restrictions on type and placement.
