A development permit is required for most forms of development within the Town. The Land Use Bylaw outlines the types of developments allowed in each land use district and the rules and regulations governing those uses. Not all developments require a development permit. Section 3.2 of the Land Use Bylaw outlines developments that do not require a permit.
DP: Notices - 2021
The following development permits have been received by the Planning & Development department and have the following status:
- P = means the file is "pending" or in review by the department. (when the file is in this status, the permit will not be able to be reviewed by a citizen until a decision has been made by the Planning Authority of either "approved" or "refused".)
- R = means the file has been "refused".
- W = means the file has been "withdrawn".
- A = means the file has been "approved" by the Planning Authority.
- I = means the file has been deemed "incomplete" by the Planning Authority after the initial intake, and more information has been requested to verify compliance with the Land Use Bylaw.
The Planning Authority for Development Permits is either the Development Officer (DO), or the Municipal Planning Commission (MPC), or the Council (C) of the Town of St. Paul.

Once the development permit has been approved, citizens have 21 days to appeal the development permit decision if they wish. A permitted use permit can be appealed only by a citizen if it can be demonstrated that the Land Use Bylaw has been misinterpreted. The use (permitted or discretionary) can be verified on the issued development permit.
The appeal board can either be the local Intermunicpal Subdivision and Development Appeal Board (ISDAB) or the Land and Property Rights Tribunal (formerly Municipal Government Board as of June 2, 2021). Please contact the department to verify the appropriate appeal board.
The Notice of Appeal form for the ISDAB can be accessed by clicking this link. Fee: $500.00
The Notice of Appeal form for the LPRT can be accessed by clicking this link.
Once a development permit has been approved or refused, arrangements for viewing any of the listed development permits can be made by contacting Planning & Development at email@example.com or call 780-645-4481 and ask to speak to staff in Planning & Development.
