A common condition of subdivision or development permit approval is the requirement for the developer or landowner to enter into a servicing agreement with the City of Edmonton.
A servicing agreement is a legal contract between the developer and the City which outlines the terms and conditions that must be met in order for the subdivision or development to occur.
A servicing agreement may require the developer to construct public infrastructure such as sewers, water distribution systems, and roads in accordance with the City Design and Construction Standards.
A servicing agreement may also require the developer to pay certain fees and assessments, such as sewer or roadway development levies, which are used to pay for larger shared infrastructure from which the land will benefit.
The Industrial Infrastructure Cost Sharing Program is available to assist in the financing of larger shared infrastructure, and to reduce the financial hardships that development levies can cause for developers and landowners.
