PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT
Planning and Development manages long-range planning for Fox Creek’s land use and development; the Department also assists current residents, developers, builders and other stakeholders by permitting, applications reviews, and public consultations on community development decisions.
Fox Creek’s vision for a positive future—captured through public engagement and outlined in the Municipal Development Plan—guides the day-to-day activities of Planning and Development. The Department is committed to using Smart Growth principles to facilitate the design and implementation of our programs and incentives.
Fox Creek’s Land Use Bylaw, and amendments, regulate how land and buildings are used, building location, site allocation, building heights, and other provisions to ensure orderly development.
In addition to providing additional commercial opportunities, we also want to position our downtown as a centre of community activity.
The MD of Greenview and the Town of Fox Creek have jointly adopted an intermunicipal development plan (IDP) for lands lying within the municipalities. The Inter-municipal Development Plan provides for the future land use, the manner of and proposals for future development and any other matter relating to the physical, social or economic development within the shared area.
Before beginning development on any project there are several steps you will need to take to make sure your new building or development is in compliance with local bylaws and regulations.
The Town of Fox Creek requires all businesses that are operating, working, providing or selling a product or service within or partially within the town corporate boundaries to possess a valid Fox Creek business license
When a land owner wishes to split their lot in half or when a developer wishes to create a multi-lot subdivision for the construction of several homes, they need a subdivision permit. In order to allow for the subdivision to occur there are several administrative and legal changes that must take place.
Safety Codes Officers (SCO) review building plans and complete construction inspections as required under the Alberta Building Code. You must have a plans review completed by an accredited SCO before a building permit can be issued.
