So as I read this, here is what I am able to surmise:

Old Code:
Can have an interior and exterior ADU (if the exterior ADU is inhabited by a domestic employee);

New Code:
Can have EITHER an interior OR Exterior ADU, but not both. Removes the domestic employee restriction.

Old Code:
External ADU can be as large as zoning lot coverage permits and 20 feet in height;

New Code:
External ADU is limited to 450 square feet and 22 feet in height.

Old Code:
Existing out structure can be converted to an ADU by right as long as neither the footprint nor height change. Any changes to the footprint or height requires a special exception.

New Code:
Existing out structure can be converted to an ADU by right as long as neither the footprint nor height change. Any changes to the footprint or height requires a special exception (identical to old code).

Other than the removal of the "domestic employee" restriction, can someone please point out where there is a significant change to the existing code?
