Accessory Dwelling Units


On September 12, 2022, the South Orange Planning firm, Topology, proposed an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) ordinance for introduction to the Board of Trustees.

What is an ADU? 

Proposed Ordinance Definition: “A self-contained portion of a principal, one-family dwelling, two-family dwelling, or an accessory structure, used as a secondary housing unit independent of the primary dwelling unit, that can only be used as a residence for occupancy by one family/housekeeping unit for 90 days or greater, on the same lot as a one or two-family dwelling where the owner lives on site, that is smaller in size and height than the principal building on the lot that serves as a dwelling unit.
