The Province of Alberta, through the Municipal Government Act (MGA) requires all municipalities to have a Municipal Development Plan, which is a statutory plan that establishes policies for land use for future growth in the entire municipality.
An Area Structure Plan is a statutory plan that establishes the general land use, transportation, and servicing framework for specific areas undergoing substantial new development, usually in greenfield areas. The area structure plan must comply with the Municipal Development Plan.
Our Centre-Ville Area Redevelopment Plan is a statutory plan that sets out a clear vision, supported by principles and policy directions to encourage and guide development and redevelopment in the Centre-Ville area over the next 25+ years, with a focus on implementation.
Our Centre-Ville proposes urban design strategies, land use concepts and policies through four different precincts within Centre-Ville: Civic and Institutional Precinct, Downtown Core Precinct, Residential Infill Precinct, and Cultural Heritage Precinct. Each precinct offers a distinct character and a focused theme regarding land use and built form while allowing a diversity of development opportunities such as civic, institutional, residential, commercial and cultural amenities and uses throughout the plan area.
A Neighbourhood Structure Plan is a non-statutory plan that provides a more detailed planning/land use servicing framework for a specific area within an area structure plan and therefore must comply with the higher order Area Structure Plan.
An Outline Plan is a non-statutory plan that provides land use and servicing frameworks for future subdivision and development within neighbourhoods. These frameworks are consistent with the City’s Municipal Development Plan land use policies as well as other relevant municipal policies and plans at the time of adoption.
To make an application for a new Area Structure Plan or amend an existing Plan, contact Planning for a Pre-Application meeting. Afterwards, download and complete the New Plan and Plan Amendment Application Package.
The Terms of Reference for the Preparation and Amendment of Statutory and Non-Statutory Land Use Plans provides information on the requirements and processes to prepare these plans in the City of Beaumont. Applicants are encouraged to review and be familiar with the information provided in this document prior to making the application.
