Obtaining A Development Permit

How do I obtain a Development Permit?



Submit the following:

Things to note:

  1. Legislation requires a decision to be issued within 40 days. (Or an extension is required.) 
  2. Applications for a discretionary use are circulated to adjacent landowners for comment prior to issuing a decision. 
  3. If construction has not started within 1 year of an issued permit, the permit is considered void.  A new application is required. 
  4. There is a 21-day appeal period following the issuance of a development permit.
  5. Development adjacent to a provincial highway requires a Roadside Development Permit issued by Alberta Transportation.
  6. The Homeowner/Contractor is obligated to obtains all the necessary Safety Code Permits prior to construction. 
A SITE PLAN AND THE REQUIRED FEE MUST ACCOMPANY ALL PERMIT APPLICATION FORMS.
THE COUNTY WILL NOT PROCESS AN APPLICATION WITHOUT THE APPROPRIATE DOCUMENTATION.  COMMENCING A DEVELOPMENT WITHOUT AN APPROVED PERMIT WHERE REQUIRED IS ILLEGAL.
