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Withdrawn = means the file has been withdrawn by the applicant or owner.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.

Who are the Planning Authorities?

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.

How do I file an appeal?

The appeal board can either be the local Intermunicipal Subdivision and Development Appeal Board (ISDAB) or the Land and Property Rights Tribunal (LPRT) formerly Municipal Government Board as of June 2, 2021. 

  • 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 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 or as noted below. 

Why is some information redacted on the permit that I requested?

Due to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIP) Act some parts of the permit may be severed (blacked out) before it is released.
