County receives application from Alberta BioBord

Public consultation and additional information expected to complete application

The County of Stettler has received and is reviewing a development permit application from Alberta BioBord for a Fuel Pellet Plant to be located in the NW 9-39-19-W4M.

The application materials received to date offer the first clear indication of how the first phase of development of the NW 9 is proposed to take place, noted a release from the County.

“The work to date to create a well-planned and thought out development is greatly appreciated and Alberta BioBord’s project is a welcomed diversification and expansion of our local economy.”

The materials address many, but not all, of the planning issues related to this scale and type of development. Alberta BioBord has been requested to submit additional materials to complete their application by or before Feb. 28, 2022.

The requested materials include a summary and outcomes of a public consultation process based on the plans and materials that have been and will be submitted to the County.

All materials submitted as part of the development permit application will be made available through the public consultation.

“The County looks forward to continued work with Alberta BioBord to move their application through the development permit process.”

Alberta BioBord is expected to undertake the public consultation with County representatives participating as observers.
