The Town of Danville Garden Cottage Program

The Town of Danville has introduced a permit-ready Garden Cottage Program in response to an increasing demand for these units from residents.

DANVILLE – If you’ve ever wanted to expand your home by adding more living space, the Town of Danville can help. By recognizing the demand from Danville residents, the Town has created a program to encourage the construction of Garden Cottages. These smaller living units are affordable to a wide range of income levels, including elderly family members. A Garden Cottage is a self-contained building that is typically smaller than the main home. It contains a kitchen, bathroom and a sleeping area and can either be attached to the main house or a built as a detached unit. This new program offers Danville residents a selection of free pre-approved, permit-ready construction plans that have been designed by talented local architects.
