County of Wetaskiwin sees over $1 million in Oct. development permits

Lansdown Park neighbours complain about livestock on acreage

The County of Wetaskiwin saw over $1 million in development permits for the month of October, councilors heard at their Planning and Economic Development meeting.

Director of Planning and Development David Blades gave his regular report for councilors.

“During the month of October, there were twenty-eight (28) development permits completed with an estimated value of $1,222,567.65,” stated Blades in his memo to council.

“Three (3) permits were Commercial, eight (8) were Recreational and seventeen (17) Residential development permits were issued.

“There were two (2) Compliance Certificates issued, one (1) Request to Operate Business, one (1) NRCB Referral, and administration conducted three (3) site inspections, eleven (11) subdivision design reviews/inspections, and approximately twelve (12) approach inspections.”

Development officer Jarvis Grant described the various inspections for council.

Grant said three site inspections were conducted in October, with the most “controversial” one being within Lansdown Park. Grant aid a renter had some livestock on their nine acres and neighbours complained. Grant explained such a parcel with country residential zoning requires a development permit for keeping of livestock.

He said the renter had been notified and the county is waiting for the development permit application.

Blades elaborated on one of his details. He said the county is asked to comment on intensive feedlot operation applications to the provincial government, but the authority for such applications is always the provincial government’s NRCB.
