Any building 240 sq. ft. or larger (150 sq. ft. or larger within any residential, recreational, or commercial land use district) requires development permit approval. Prior to any groundwork or construction, a development permit must be approved and, in most cases, approvals under the Safety Codes Act of Alberta must also be obtained. It is strongly encouraged that proponents schedule a pre-application meeting with the Planning & Development Department prior to submitting a development permit application to ensure a more streamlined permitting process. The County of Minburn public GIS system can be used to plan your development and use your aerial photo for the site plan. For more information on the development permit process, view our FAQs page or contact the County’s Planning & Development Department at 780-632-2082.
Development Permit fees can now be paid online using Option Pay.
