Area Structure Plan

Area Structure Plan (ASP)

An Area Structure Plan (ASP) provides direction for long term land use and infrastructure planning of a defined area within a municipality.

Does the Town have any adopted ASPs?

Currently the Town of St. Paul has no ASPs that have been adopted by Council.

Does the Town have any ASPs in progress?

Through a grant, the Town of St. Paul & the County of St. Paul No. 19 are working on the St. Paul North Area Structure Plan. This project started in the summer of 2021 and is expected to continue to 2022.

Major Area Structure Plans (ASPs)

A Major ASP means a long-range land use and servicing plan adopted by bylaw and prepared in accordance with the Municipal Government Act. The Major ASP is prepared for a large land base typically consisting of one or more quarters section of land that has an anticipated build out of five-years or more. The Major ASP provides a high-level framework for future land use patterns and infrastructure provision, and involves a Major Development or an industrial or commercial subdivision exceeding 3 lots, or a residential subdivision exceeding 6 lots, and any subdivision located in proximity to a highway when required by Alberta Transportation.

Conceptual Scheme or Outline Plan

The Town may require the preparation of a Conceptual Scheme or Outline Plan, before rezoning, subdivision and/or development of any parcel which will be subdivided into 3 or more lots consisting of less than 2.0 hectares of developable land (excluding municipal reserve lands).

A Conceptual Scheme or Outline Plan, is a plan for a proposed multi-parcel subdivision and how it relates to:

  • existing and future parcels;
  • future subdivision and development of adjacent areas;
  • access;
  • servicing, and;
  • reserves.
