San Diego has created a 42-page granny flat handbook to encourage more property owners to construct such housing units by making the process easier to understand.

Granny flats, which are additional housing units on an existing property, are being viewed in San Diego and across the nation as a way to create more housing without more land or infrastructure.

City officials say granny flats are the fastest and cheapest way to grow the local supply of affordable housing, prompting them to create the handbook so fewer people will be intimidated or confused by the process.

The handbook explains zoning rules, parking requirements, the city’s approval process and the details of a subsidy program the city established last year.

It also covers how to secure a city permit, how far from property lines a granny flat must be built, how the units might affect property taxes, whether a unit can be sold and when the property owner must live on-site.
