Any development on your lot requires a development permit. If you are considering doing any work, please APPLY EARLY, as development applications require a number of documents and plans to be submitted, and appropriate notice periods. See Timelines below for further detail.
Any development along the shoreline requires a development permit. This includes property that is under a lease agreement from the Easement Holders Association (EHA), a Public Utility Lot (PUL), or an undeveloped Road Use Allowance. Those that are members of the Easement Holder's Association (EHA) will require approval from the EHA, which the Summer Village Development Officer will help coordinate.
Once your development permit has been approved, you will need to get the necessary permits (building, gas, plumbing, electrical) from The Inspections Group.
All shoreline work additionally requires a permit from Alberta Environment and Parks.

Alberta One Call has changed their name now to “Utility Safety Partners”.

Development Information Sheet
Note that this can be submitted electronically if it is clear and to scale (no photos of drawings, please scan in or email original document)
Property owners are urged to hire a draftsperson/other designer or an architect to draw up their plans. While they can draw the plans themselves, when they're done professionally they tend to be much easier to read and provide higher levels of detail.
For a standard development application, once all files and the application has been received, the permit will take approximately 3 weeks.
If a variance or discretionary use is requested, there will be an extra ~ 3 weeks for the permit.
Note: any changes requested, or missing documents will require additional time.
Once the permit is issued, there is a 21 day notice and appeal period before the permit comes into effect.
All requests are processed in the order they are received.
