Phase 1 - Policy Cleanup
The City Plan directs how the city needs to develop to welcome 1 million more residents and the City is working to align its plans and processes to support The City Plan’s vision.
For the first time, the City has undergone a broad review of all of its land use plans to determine which plans still provide direction for development and which have fulfilled their purpose.
Edmonton currently has more than 200 policies and plans in effect, some of which are 30+ years old. Plans are put in place to either guide the development of new areas or to address issues that existing neighbourhoods have had at specific times in the past. Some plans, though, remain in effect, even though they have fulfilled their purpose.
The City has made a Land Development Application (LDA) to repeal these plans, and will present the rationale to Council at a Public Hearing planned for June 1, 2021. Details on the confirmed public hearing date and how the public can participate will be made available when they are finalized.
