Step 1: Application Submission
The Planning and Development department accepts planning application submissions from applicants to amend statutory or non-statutory plans in Beaumont. The applicant will submit their proposed plans and rationale to the City, along with any required supporting studies or reports.
Step 2: Application Referral
The City will send notification of the planning application to adjacent property owners, as well as internal departments and external agencies, such as utilities companies and provincial ministries. Feedback received will form part of the land use analysis and evaluation to improve the application, which may include an update to the application.
Step 3: Application Considerations
The assigned city planner considers all feedback received when making a recommendation to City Council on the plan amendment. In some situations, if there are significant changes to the application, the application may be referred to adjacent property owners and other departments and agencies again for more feedback.
Step 4: Public Hearing
The public will have an opportunity to attend a non-statutory public hearing and speak directly to City Council regarding this proposed plan amendment. The notice of this non-statutory public hearing will be mailed to adjacent property owners, published in the La Nouvelle Beaumont News newspaper, and posted on the City of Beaumont website.
More information on how to submit a written or verbal statement will be supplied on the notice.
After the non-statutory public hearing, City Council will consider the plan amendment application.

The proposed application is not removing or making changes to a portion of the public utility lot in the northwest section of the stormwater management facility. The amendment to the northwest section of the stormwater management section is to update the development concept map to reflect what has been developed to date.
The proposed plan amendment will result in an increase of the area of low-density residential by 0.7 hectares (1.73 acres). This change results in approximately 18 additional dwelling units (houses), housing around 65 people.
No, the proposed plan amendment does not change the land dedicated to the City as municipal reserve (recreational/school land). The applicant is proposing to reconfigure the local road network, and the municipal reserve land does not decrease the total amount of municipal reserve dedicated to the City.
The City will be creating a summary of what was heard from residents about the proposed plan amendment. This summary will be formalized and will be included in a report to City Council about the proposed plan amendment.
The City of Beaumont creates the property notification list based on where the plan amendment boundary is located. Once the boundary is marked on a map, a 100-metre radius is applied to identify all the properties located within 100 metres from the amendment boundary. If your property is outside this radius, you would not have received a mailed notification.
An outline plan is a non-statutory plan that provides land use and servicing frameworks to guide future subdivision and development within a neighbourhood that are consistent with the City’s municipal development plans, as well as other relevant municipal policies and plans at the time of adoption.
The Ruisseau outline plan, and other existing statutory/non-statutory land use plans, can be found here, on the City's website.
