City Launches Educational Land Planning Video Series
The City of Edmonton has launched the Developing Edmonton video series to help residents better understand how the land planning process shapes our city.
The videos take residents through each stage of the development process, including how to ensure they are complying with regulations when undertaking their own home renovation or building project and how to get involved and learn more when a new development is being built in their neighbourhood.
There are three videos in the series, each one covering a main tool the City uses to support safe and effective growth in Edmonton.
Developing Edmonton – Planning: the legislation, policies and plans that govern how land is used and establish a unified vision for how Edmonton will grow now and into the future.
Developing Edmonton – Permits: permits ensure that what is being built is safe, and the appearance and use is consistent with the rest of the neighbourhood. Permits help protect citizens and are the result of years of experience, testing and feedback.
Developing Edmonton – Inspections: inspections are conducted at each phase of construction to ensure the finished building meets the safety and environmental requirements set out in the Alberta Building Code, National Energy Code and other relevant codes and standards.
These videos are one of the resources and educational materials available on the City’s land planning and development process.
