Generally, an application for subdivision goes through the following steps:

  • Submission of a completed application with the required fee.  The application form can be found at
  • Referral to internal municipal staff and departments, school divisions, utility companies, and government departments, among other agencies for comment.
  • Notification of subdivision application to adjacent landowners and receipt of input.
  • Decision (tentative approval, tentative approval with conditions, or refusal), normally within 60 days.  This occurs when SE Planning (the County Planning Advisor) prepares a recommendation and submits it to the County. The Planning Advisor will then take it to the next Municipal Planning Commission Meeting.
  • Appeal period (19 days) – potential appeal to Subdivision and Development Appeal Board or Municipal Government Board by applicant or provincial agency – not by neighbors.
  • Fulfillment of any conditions specified in the decision.
  • Submission of a Descriptive Plan, Plan of Survey, or other instrument to SE Planning, together with the required fee for endorsement (final approval).
  • Registration of the Plan or document at the Alberta Land Titles Office.
