Statutory & Outline Plans

Statutory Plans



A Statutory Plan is a plan that has been prepared by Beaumont staff and then officially brought into law by Council. There are multiple kinds of statutory plans that affect growth and development in Beaumont.



Municipal Development Plan


The Province of Alberta, through the Municipal Government Act (MGA) requires all municipalities to have a Municipal Development Plan, which is a high level planning document that sets forth future land use for the municipality. Beaumont's MDP is currently undergoing a major update as a part of the Our Beaumont project.

Amendments to Beaumont’s Municipal Development Plan (Bylaw 894-17) are being proposed in response to the delay in receiving approval for the new Municipal Development Plan, Our Complete Community. The purpose of Bylaw 894-17 is to:

      • recognize Beaumont’s boundary as of January 1, 2017 - to enable development to occur on the new lands; and
      • set the framework for upgrading Beaumont’s planning system through the use of statutory plans

Inter-Municipal Development Plan


There is an Inter-Municipal Development Plan (IDP) between Beaumont and Leduc County.


Central Area Redevelopment Plan


The Central Area Redevelopment Plan (CARP) provides a framework for encouraging, and guiding development and redevelopment in the central area of Beaumont. The goal is to make the central area the major business, social, cultural, and entertainment focus of the community.


Area Structure Plans


An Area Structure Plan is a statutory plan that provides a framework for development and growth in a specific area of land.
