West Macleod Area Structure Plan Amendment


The City is working closely with landowners and the public to create an amendment to the
West Macleod Area Structure Plan (ASP)​. An ASP is a long-range plan that guides development in a specific area. The amendment to the West Macleod ASP is to include an additional 61 hectares (151 acres) of undeveloped land in south east Calgary, west of Macleod Trail. This ASP amendment is part of the developer-funded model, intended to shorten the amount of time it takes to prepare the plan to approximately one year.

On August 10, 2017, Administration presented the proposed West Macleod ASP amendments to Calgary Planning Commission​. The agenda and report is posted at Calgary Planning Commission Archived Agendas, Minutes and Video August 10.

The amendments were approved by City Council on September 12, 2017. The meeting minutes and video of the session will be posted to the Council website. The approved document will be available to view on this page soon.

West Macleod Area Structure Plan Amendment map  


The West Macleod Area Structure Plan (ASP) was adopted by Council in 2009. In June 2014, Council amended the ASP to include an additional 185 hectares (460 acres) of land south of 210 Ave. S to accommodate substantial future growth in Calgary’s southwest.

On October 4, 2016, Council passed a Notice of Motion​ directing Administration to enter into an agreement with the landowner, Highfield Investment Group Inc, to fund the cost of amending the West Macleod ASP and to review concurrently an application for Outline Plan and Land Use Amendment. The purpose of the amendment is to revise the south eastern boundaries of the West Macleod ASP to reflect a logical extension to the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) line, identify lands that qualify as Environmental Open Space (EOS) Study Area and review long-term connectivity options into future growth areas and annexation lands contained within the Municipal District of Foothills.
