PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT
Planning and Development manages land use, including long-range planning and forecasting, subdivision applications reviews, land use plans and policies and public consultation on proposed land use changes.
This department also administers the permitting and compliance certificate process, ensures building and renovation design meet quality standards and provides mapping and addressing functions.
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
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.
