Multi-lot Development

Interested in developing a multi-lot residential, commercial or industrial development?

County policy generally restricts multi-lot development only to areas that have been designated for such use in an area structure plan or other plan initiated and approved by County Council.

The Multi-lot Development Proposals guide has been created to reflect the policies implemented in the Municipal Development Plan and to help aid the public through the approval process. Areas where multi-lot development may currently be considered are shown on Figure 1 of the County’s Municipal Development Plan, a copy is included in the guide.

It is recommended you contact the Planning Services staff to discuss your proposal, as they are happy to meet with you to discuss the process and the type of information that would be required for your specific situation.  For more information, or to set up a meeting with Planning Services staff, please call 403-782-8389.

The Multi-lot Development Proposals guide is available at the Lacombe County office or can be downloaded from the application forms and information guides page.
