You need a development permit to:
- Construct or move in a building or structure
- Operate a business, including a home based business
- develop an unfinished basement
- erect a sign
Before starting any building project, ensure that you have the necessary safety code permits for your project. The safety code system is designed to ensure your project is built in accordance with the Alberta Building Code and relevant safety codes
While a permit is not required for basic landscaping, if your plans include re-grading (removal of soil, bringing in soil, artifical water bodies or dugouts), please contact us.
Changing the way water flows on your property can have a negative affect on your neighbours' properties.
We are here to ensure your plans proceed without issues before, during and after construction.
If you don’t have the time or desire to grow crops, or don’t want to invest in equipment to plant and harvest crops or forages, an alternative is to rent out your land.
The land will not evolve back to prairie if you ignore it. Leaving cropland idle will provide the habitat for invasive weeds and irritate your neighbours.
Information for you as a landlord wanting to enter into a rental agreement can be found in the Alberta Government publication: Leasing Cropland in Alberta
