As a potential developer within Sturgeon County, there are requirements that must be provided prior to your request going before Council. Following the Outline Plan listed below will ensure that Council is provided with as much information as possible to make a sound decision on your development request:
Minimum Requirements for Potential Developments
- The location, dimension and boundaries of the ¼ section to be subdivided;
- The location, area and proposed dimensions of all parcels, roads and points of access to all the proposed parcels;
- A recent air photo of the subject area;
- Contour information, related to a geodetic datum is to be superimposed over the plan and the air photo;
- The location, dimensions, numbers and other designations shall be noted in respect to highways, secondary roads, county roads, and rights-of-way or easements (including pipelines, well sites, power transmission and distribution lines and railway lines) on record in Land Titles which exist on or adjacent to the lands subject of the plan;
- The location of all existing buildings or structures on or immediately adjacent to the lands;
- The location, siting and plotting of natural and man-made physical features such as sloughs and/or other bodies of water, rivers, creeks and intermittent streams, muskeg or swamp, subsidence information on valley banks, top of bank, wooded areas, man-made water bodies, major drainage ditches, gravel deposits (optional), and land under cultivation;
- Proposed methods of handling surface drainage through a preliminary storm water management plan;
- Preliminary water table and soils analysis (optional);
- The location, dimensions and areas of all proposed municipal and environmental reserve parcels, conservation easements, and public utility lots.
Once the submission has been provided to the Planning & Development department a presentation to County Council will be scheduled. The Councillor for the area will be informed of the proposal once the submission has been received.
After the presentation, County Council, with the assistance of staff, will review the submission to determine if the proposal has exceptional merit and the proponent should be encouraged to proceed to the Area Structure Plan stage at their own risk.
This alternative would be implemented and remain in effect until the adoption of any new policies, procedures or bylaw amendments related to the completion of the Municipal Development Plan Review process.
