AN ACT relative to accessory dwelling units.

 

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

 

89:1  Accessory Dwelling Units.  Amend RSA 674:72, I to read as follows:

I.  A municipality that adopts a zoning ordinance pursuant to the authority granted in this chapter shall allow accessory dwelling units as a matter of right or by either conditional use permit pursuant to RSA 674:21 or by special exception, in all zoning districts that permit single-family dwellings.  One accessory dwelling unit shall be allowed without additional requirements for lot size, frontage, space limitations, or other controls beyond what would be required for a single-family dwelling without an accessory dwelling unit.  The municipality is not required to allow more than one accessory dwelling unit for any single-family dwelling.  The municipality may prohibit accessory dwelling units associated with multiple single-family dwellings attached to each other such as townhouses, and with manufactured housing as defined in RSA 674:31.  Subsequent condominium conveyance of any accessory dwelling unit separate from that of the principal dwelling unit shall be prohibited, notwithstanding the provisions of RSA 356-B:5, unless allowed by the municipality.

89:2  Effective Date.  This act shall take effect upon its passage.
