Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs)

The City of Savannah is reviewing the current zoning standards for accessory dwelling units (ADUs) to address the need for additional housing in our community.  Commonly referred to as a carriage house, in-law unit, or secondary dwelling unit, an ADU is a structure used as an individual residential unit located on the same lot as the principal dwelling.  It must have a bathroom, kitchen and bedroom.  

            Please refer to this section of the Zoning Ordinance  for the current ADU development standards.   

            If you have any questions, please contact or call 912-651-3108.
