Accessory Affordable Apartment Program

The Accessory Affordable Apartment Program (Section 9, Article II of the Code of the Town of Barnstable) is one component of the Town of Barnstable’s overall Affordable Housing Plan. Since its inception in 2000, the main objective of the Program has been to use existing housing to provide safe, clean, legal and affordable housing while maintaining positive working relationships between the town and property owners. The Program was amended in 2002 to allow for the creation of a new accessory affordable housing unit in an owner-occupied dwelling or within an existing detached structure on the property.

Participation is subject to the issuance of a Comprehensive Permit by the Zoning Board of Appeals Hearing Officer. To date, approximately 188 affordable housing units have been permitted by this program and 140 are currently active.

The Accessory Affordable Housing Coordinator assists the property owner throughout the permitting process beginning with their initial program inquiry through the final steps of the Comprehensive Permit application process by:
  • Helping the property owner to determine if they are eligible.
  • Helping to assemble application materials.
  • Coordinating various staff and committee comments on the application.
  • Assisting the property owner is seeking funding assistance for rehabilitation and upgrade to an existing unit.
