Development Permit Notices 2022

Development Permit Notices

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. 

Permit Status

  • Pending = means the file is 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".)
  • Refused = means the file has been refused by the Planning Authority.
  • Withdrawn = means the file has been withdrawn by the applicant or owner.
  • Approved = means the file has been approved by the Planning Authority.
  • Incomplete = means the file has been deemed incomplete by the Planning Authority after the initial intake, and further information has been requested to verify compliance with the Land Use Bylaw or the application is pending response from Alberta Transportation.

How do I view a permit?

Once a development permit has been approved or refused, arrangements to view a development permit can be made by contacting Planning & Development at pd@town.stpaul.ab.ca or call 780-645-1766. 

Obtaining a copy of the issued development permit may help you make a decision on whether or not to file an appeal as an affected party.  There is typically conditions imposed on a permit that could mitigate your concerns.
