Preparing to Apply
Review the Zoning Regulations
Not all residential properties have the same zoning regulations. Your proposed project will need to fit with the zoning regulations of the area where you plan to build.
To confirm a project’s property zoning, use the City of Edmonton’s interactive zoning map.
- Go to maps.edmonton.ca
- Enter the property’s address in the fields on the left and click ‘Find Address’
- The property’s ‘Current Zone’ and ‘Overlays’ will be highlighted.
Type of development, lot dimensions, lot area and placement of buildings will all be assessed before your project can be approved, as part of the Development Permit application.

Edmonton’s new Zoning Bylaw (Charter Bylaw 20001) and city-wide rezoning (Charter Bylaw 21001) were approved by City Council at the Statutory Public Hearing on October 23, 2023.
The Zoning Map will come into effect on January 1, 2024.and
