Edmonton’s Zoning Bylaw requires landscaping for commercial, industrial and multi-family residential developments.

Please note: The information on this webpage still reflects the policies and regulations that were in effect prior to Zoning Bylaw 20001 coming into effect on January 1, 2024.

A landscape security is collected by the City to cover the cost of landscaping and ensures that landscaping is completed according to Section 5.60 of the Zoning Bylaw and the approved development permit plans.

Securities are only required for major development permits (commercial, industrial, and multi-family residential), and are held until the Development Officer confirms that the required landscaping has been maintained in a healthy condition for a minimum of 24 months.
