The Municipal Planning Commission (MPC) issued a stop order to 2066052 Alberta Ltd. for the lands at NE 20-40-20 W4M (Paradise Shores RV Resort) at a special meeting called by MPC on May 17th.
On May 2nd, the County of Stettler conducted a site inspection to determine compliance with the County’s Land Use Bylaw and DP 18001, issued in relation to a Recreational Vehicle Park, according to a press release.
The County of Stettler has significant concerns that requirements of the Development Permit (as issued by the Subdivision and Development Appeal Board) have not been met.
The County and the developer are both bound by the decision of the Subdivision & Development Appeal Board (SDAB).
Once all of the conditions to the Development Permit 18001 are met, this existing permit would allow the developer to host a maximum of 168 RV Sites.
Copies of the SDAB decision, the Site Inspection Report and the stop order can be found on the County’s web site at www.stettlercounty.ca/paradiseshores.
It was on Nov. 2nd, 2018 that the Subdivision Development and Appeal Board (SDAB) released its decision allowing 168 lots subject to conditions.
On Nov. 30th, Paradise Shores filed an application for permission to appeal with the Court of Appeal of Alberta.
On Jan. 23rd, there was a hearing at the Court of Appeal for the permission application with the judge reserving a decision.
On April 18th, the municipality issued a notice of inspection to Paradise Shores (with amendments issued April 24th) and required Paradise Shores to provide various documents including a traffic impact assessment, a geotechnical report, approvals from AEP (for water, sewage, and stormwater systems); leases and lessees’ contact information.
Later on May 2nd, a site inspection was conducted of the development, according to the County release.
And on May 17th, the stop order was issued and an open letter to the affected parties was released.
According to the County, staff will continue continue to communicate and work with the developer, “With our number one priority being to ensure compliance of the conditions of the SDAB decision which speak to the safety of the development which affects all lease holders, visitors, staff and contractors.
“Once the conditions of the SDAB decision are met, we look forward to this development moving forward.”
More to come.
