 Building & Development

A development permit and a building permit are required for most new developments and changes to land use. A development permit ensures that the changes to your property meets the requirements of the Village’s Land Use Bylaw and the building permit ensures that the development meets the requirements of the Alberta Building Code.

Building Permits

Common instances that require a building permit include, but are not limited to:

New construction and additions.
Minor improvements (decks, sheds, hot tubs, swimming pools, wood-burning appliances, etc.).
Demolishing and moving buildings; or
Renovations.

Development Permits

Common instances that require a building permit include, but are not limited to:

Excavation or stockpiling.
New, replacements, or repairs to buildings.
Changing current use of land or a building; or
Placement of already constructed or partially constructed buildings.


Please refer to the Village’s Land Use Bylaw for complete information on our building and development permit requirements.

In addition to our municipal requirements, your project may require additional permits. We encourage you to contact an Accredited Agency that provides permits and inspections in the province of Alberta.
