What documents do I need?

Who approves an application for a statutory plan or statutory plan amendment?

Council makes the final decision on all Statutory Plan amendment applications. If an application is approved, it becomes an amendment to the Municipal Development Plan or the Area Structure Plan. Council's approval or refusal is final and cannot be appealed.

What is a public hearing?

A public hearing is a process in which members of the public have the opportunity to send written comments to, or speak in front of Council in regards to a bylaw or a development application. The Municipal Government Act requires that all Land Use Bylaw amendment applications (such as a redistricting) and statutory plan approvals, and subsequent amendments have a public hearing.

The public hearing may be advertised in a local newspaper, and adjacent landowners may receive a written notice in the mail. Members of the public can submit written comments, and speak at the public hearing in regards to amendment application.
