As-of-right ADU in Raleigh, NC

City Of Raleigh   
Urban | Suburban |
Previously restricted ADU construction to a specific overlay zone, did not allow ADUs as of right in any residential zone, and required residents to petition their neighbors when seeking to develop ADUs on their property. Now, Raleigh allows ADUs as of right in all residential zones without any significant restriction on their construction or subsequent use. This promotes affordable housing and encourages diversity in both housing stock and occupancy.
