People see our city as a great place to live, work, and invest in. With a new municipal development plan, Edmonton is poised to grow to a city of 2 million people — and a big part of this is increasing housing choices to welcome new people at every stage of life and income level into our older neighbourhoods.
Learn about the status of the City’s work plan to enable infill, and direct links to relevant resources to support knowledge building around the permitting and construction processes for redevelopment.

The Infill Data Explorer is another tool the City of Edmonton has developed to support industry and homeowners in building a more vibrant and sustainable Edmonton.
Infill Compliance Dashboard
The City of Edmonton monitors and enforces infill construction activities through the Infill Compliance Team. This collaborative and integrated team is composed of Community Standards Peace Officers, Safety Codes Officers, Development Compliance Officers, Development Permit Inspectors and Lot Grading Inspectors.
When infill construction issues arise, residents are encouraged to first work with the builder to discuss their concerns. Residents can also issue complaints through 311.
The Infill Compliance Dashboard is an online platform which displays current inspection and enforcement information related to infill construction sites and contains information such as the number of inspections undertaken and the number of written warnings or tickets issued in a calendar year. It’s important to note that most, if not all, infractions represented on the dashboard are resolved by builders.
