Can I build an ADU in Charlotte, NC?

On June 1, 2023, Charlotte, NC created a significant piece of legislation, the Charlotte Unified Development Ordinance (UDO).

This new zoning created a very different answer to the question; Can I build an ADU in Charlotte, NC?

Prior to this law, there were far fewer lots that were zoned to allow for additional housing structures to be built (ADU's). This was particularly frustrating for those from the west coast that were familiar with the massive benefits of ADU structures. ADU's are a fantastic way to create, high-quality, beautiful new construction, while creating more density in a fast-growing city such as Charlotte, NC.

Now for the important stuff. The most important take away from the new zoning is that MANY more lots are now eligible for development in the city! There are certainly a number of factors that must be calculated when determining the allowable size of an ADU that you can build on your property. Have no fear, help is here!
