When considering development activity, the proposal must comply with the current Land Use Bylaw. If the proposed development does not fit the activity described within the Land Use Bylaw, the land requires a change or “rezoning” to allow for that activity. Proposed changes or rezoning of the Land Use Bylaw must reflect the policies of the Municipal Development Plan and any relevant Area Structure Plan. Rezoning land requires Council to give first, second and third reading to the rezoning application. Community input will be asked for during a Public Hearing that is normally scheduled between 1st and 2nd reading. If you have questions, please contact Planning & Development at 780-939-8275.
Council reviews the principle of the application and, if satisfied, will ask for the scheduling of a Public Hearing to be held.
Public Hearings are conducted to identify and address concerns relating to a rezoning application prior to Council giving second reading.
Council reviews the results of the Public Hearing, and if satisfied that all issues have been satisfactorily addressed, will give second reading.
Third reading is only given when Council is fully satisfied that all issues pertaining to the rezoning application have been addressed. Please visit the forms page to obtain Rezoning Requirements & Application Forms.
