Rural residential lot line adjustment receives approval

Subdivided property moves forward with no Water Act concerns

A proposed subdivision lot line adjustment will move ahead with additional conditions, in the County of Wetaskiwin.

County councilors discussed the request from Tyler Heathcote, regarding the 12.4 acres in question, located at NE 35-47-27-W4M, during their Jan. 11 general meeting.

West Central Planning Agency senior planner Jason Tran informed councilors that in 2012 a previous council approved a first parcel out of a section of land owned by James and Cheryl Cameron; the parcel was sold to Heathcote.

In 2017 Heathcote applied for a temporary dwelling permit, which was appealed by an adjacent landowner because of drainage concerns.

Tran says the matter was referred to Alberta Environment, who came back with no Water Act related concerns.

“Based on that the current landowner applied to adjust the boundary,” said Tran.

He added the matter was also referred to Leduc County — as part of the two municipalities’ intermunicipal development plan (IDP) — which also raised no concerns.

Because the additional 12.4 acres included in the lot line adjustment application makes the first parcel out larger than the county’s standard seven acres the matter had to come before council for approval, which West Central Planning Agency was recommending.

With the lot line adjustment came a new access onto the property off Township Road 480. Coun. Josh Bishop questioned if council could make it mandatory the previously developed access off an adjacent range road could be closed.

Tran did not think the closing of that access would be a problem, as it suffers from drainage issues and caused difficulties to vehicles passing through it.

Bishop’s motion was approved and added to the list of conditions included in the county’s approval of the application.
