Municipal Planning Commission

Municipal Planning Commission

The Municipal Planning Commission (MPC) is a committee of the whole Council. The MPC is responsible for the review of subdivision and most discretionary development permit applications. At a meeting of the MPC the Planning Department will give the background on any application to the committee and submit  recommendations based on the policies approved by County Council. Then the MPC will make a decision.

All MPC decisions must conform to the Municipal Development Plan and the Land Use Bylaw within the limits of discretion provided for in the Bylaws and the Municipal Government Act. The MPC may approve a development application if the proposed development does not comply with the Land Use Bylaw provided the "use" conforms to the Land Use Bylaw and the development would not unduly interfere with the neighbourhood amenities or effect the use, enjoyment or value of neighbouring properties.

The Municipal Planning Commission meetings are open to the public and typically occur on the 3rd Wednesday of every month, If you would like to attend a meeting please contact the Planning Department at (780) 678-3070 or to confirm the time since it is subject to change.

Please note that while MPC meetings are open to the public, they are not Public Hearings. The most effective way to submit feedback on a particular proposal is in writing in advance of the meeting to the Planning and Development department, who can then attach it to the public agenda package. MPC members may, at their discretion, ask questions of administration or any affected parties relating to the agenda during the meeting.
