We are continuing to process Development Permit and Subdivision Applications. Turn around times may take longer than usual due to adjustment of staff hours. Approval was given for the reduction of staff hours to a 0.9 schedule as part of efforts to mitigate the impacts on ratepayers during the COVID-19 crisis. This reduction will impact service levels. The office is closed every second Friday starting on April 24, 2020.

Land Use District Map: Find your zone!
Are you looking to make an improvement on your property? Build a deck or a garage? Build a commercial development? Change the zoning on your property? Are you looking to subdivide your property into two or more lots? All of these developments involve the Planning Department.
Planning is the lead department for all land development applications including Subdivisions, Land Use Amendments (Rezoning), Development Permits, Sign Permits, and Beautification Grants to name a few.
The Planning Department also prepares and maintains the Town's Inter-municipal Development Plan (IDP), Municipal Development Plan (MDP), and Land Use Bylaw (LUB), which form the basis for guiding growth and development in Edson.
We would love to hear from you. A pre-application meeting is helpful in your planning process. We can answer your questions regarding your development goals or any other planning related inquiries to help you get started.
To book an appointment, the Planning Department can be contacted by phone at 780.723.4402 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
