Building moratorium lifed in county area

A year-long hold on developing multi-lot subdivisions in the County of Stettler has been lifted.

A year-long hold on developing multi-lot subdivisions in the County of Stettler has been lifted.

At its regular meeting Sept. 9, county council approved a staff recommendation to lift the moratorium now that a new municipal development plan has been adopted.

“Applications for multi-lot rezoning and subdivisions may now be submitted based on the policies of the new municipal development plan and the planning and subdivision guidelines,” said Johan van der bank, director of planning and development.

During the meeting, council adopted both the Municipal development Plan (MDP) and a policy for planning and subdivision guidelines.

Just as the county launched a review of the MDP in August 2008, council placed a moratorium on multi-lot subdivisions until an updated MDP was adopted.

“By incorporating the planning and subdivision guidelines into the administrative policy framework, the county strives to promote developer and public awareness of its multi-lot subdivision planning and approval process requirements,” said van der Bank.
