Infill is important to building a sustainable city, and the City of Edmonton recognizes the need to support more and better residential infill.
The Evolving Infill team has expanded to include partners across the City of Edmonton, and we are hard at work implementing the 23 actions in Edmonton’s Infill Roadmap. The City has committed to starting all 23 of the actions within the next two years.
Lot grading plan submission changes
Beginning October 1, 2015, a Lot Grading plan will be required at the time of submission of a Development Permit Application for construction of Single Detached, Semi Detached, and Duplex Dwellings in mature and established neighbourhoods.
This will allow the Development Permit and Lot Grading Plan processes to run at the same time, providing important information upfront to facilitate quicker review and approval times. Review the requirements of an infill lot grading plan.
This process change is intended to support infill activities by ensuring positive drainage patterns and mitigating impacts for neighbouring lots.
The Community Infill Panel needs you!
Help lead the City of Edmonton's next steps in improving infill with your ideas and share your thoughts on upcoming initiatives.
The City is putting together the Community Infill Panel to provide feedback about infill-related consultation, communication, engagement and Roadmap actions.
We’re looking for community members, representatives from community organizations, and members from the infill and development industry to provide a wide range of perspectives. Panel members will be asked to commit to approximately five meetings per year. During those meetings, the panel will discuss infill as part of a larger city building strategy and will provide the City with new perspectives and ideas to help move forward with infill.
Learn more about the Community Infill Panel by reviewing its Terms of Reference. The Community Infill Panel is action six of Edmonton's Infill Roadmap.
APPI award for Infill Roadmap
The APPI award went to Edmonton’s Infill Roadmap, a work plan to advance residential infill over two years. It was developed with citizen and stakeholder engagement to create 23 actions to improve communication, remove barriers for building infill and support infill development in our city.
Infill Roadmap Progress Report
The Infill Roadmap Progress Report identifies what work has been done so far and what Actions still need to be addressed in the two year Roadmap.
Out of the 23 actions, 11 are complete – including seven of the eight priority actions! This includes the Good Neighbour Guide (Action 5), adding an infill course to Planning Academy (Action 9), and changes to the Zoning Bylaw that make it easier to build narrow lot houses, garage suites and garden suites (Actions 14 and 15).
