Are JADUs allowed in detached accessory structures?

No. JADUs are not allowed in accessory structures. The creation of a JADU must be within the single-family residence. In addition, while attached garages are eligible for JADU creation, the maximum size for a JADU is 500 square feet. (Gov. Code, § 65852.22, subd. (a)(1), (a)(4), and (h)(1))
