Planning & Development

Planning in the County of Wetaskiwin follows an established process, and becomes more specific with each step; each step has requirements that must be met before approval is received (whether for an entire subdivision or an individual structure). This ensures consistency across services and allows the County a view of the big picture: sustainability, long-term impact and managed growth.

Planning handles development planning policies, applications for statutory planning document amendments, subdivisions, developments and compliance certifications. The department also provides planning advice to Council, the West Central Planning Agency (WCPA), and the Subdivision and Development Appeal Board (SDAB), as well as the general public.
