Development approved for Nisku gravel yard

Leduc County councillors approved a development permit application for a gravel storage yard in Nisku at its Aug. 25 meeting.

Leduc County councillors approved a development permit application for a gravel storage yard in Nisku at its Aug. 25 meeting.

Currently undeveloped, the 14.3 acres of land, located at the north end of the Nisku Business Park along 4th Street, is already zoned direct control.

Lifetime Management and Construction Ltd. is looking to use the land to store new and used trucks and trailers and well as new and used construction equipment.

The land runs adjacent to CP Rail and Highway 2 and is just southwest of Blackmud Creek.

Under the Municipal Development Plan, protection of nearby environmental features, specifically Blackmud Creek, is paramount.

In its development application Lifetime Management and Construction Ltd. stated it would not be using any hazardous materials at the site.

“We are ensuring there’s no siltation that’s going to reach the creek, I assume,” said Coun. Tanni Doblanko.

“The storm water management plan and lot grate plan show the level of flooding in different storm events,” said Charlene Haverland, Leduc County senior planner.

Lifetime Management and Construction Ltd. has been working with Alberta Environment since 2011 and obtained approval in November 2014.

Keyera Pipeline also commented on the development in document shown during the meeting and states a slope of 4:1 must be maintained and proposed earthwork cannot obstruct the natural water flow of the property.

“The storm water retention facility itself is the parking lot. A large part of the parking is designed to flood in a major storm. A minor storm will have the drainage managed,” said Haverland.

Lifetime Management and Construction Ltd. Says any flooding that may occur will not damage any large vehicles parked on the lot.
