Public hearing for frame and fabric structures

Leduc County council is looking to possibly alter a land use bylaw, which will change where frame and fabric structures are permitted.

Leduc County council is looking to possibly alter a land use bylaw, which will change where frame and fabric structures are permitted.

A public hearing on the matter will be held later in April so councillors can get a feel of what ratepayers think of the issue.

At council’s March 1 meeting a recommendation came from administration that frame and fabric structures in agricultural districts where agricultural, extensive; agricultural, horticultural and agricultural, livestock uses can be permitted.

Council also passed a motion to incorporate non-agricultural frame and fabric structures as a discretionary use in residential areas. Points council needed to look at include creating a specific use of frame and fabric structure, with an associated definition within the land use bylaw; and include a maximum period of five years for the structures, which exists in industrial and commercial districts.

Coun. Audrey Kelto questioned why the structures need to be regulated to five years.

“If the building is okay and we don’t have any complaints from neighbors and they want to extend it they can come forward,” said planner Ata Mohammed.

Frame and fabric structures were recommended as discretionary use in all districts (residential) excluding districts in the East Vistas Plan area. However, members of council were not comfortable with the division and that portion was taken out.

“We’ve got to treat them all the same,” said Coun. John Schonewille.
