The City of Calgary is currently amending the Southeast Industrial Area Structure Plan (ASP). The plan was approved in 1996 and is located south of Peigan Trail SE and north of 130 Avenue SE with the communities of Ogden, Riverbend, and Douglasdale to the west and Stoney Trail SE to the east.
The Southeast Industrial ASP is approximately 3,763 hectares (9,299 acres) in size, comprised primarily of industrial uses, with limited commercial uses in the plan area.
Phosphogypsum Stack 1 owned by Viterra Inc (formerly Western Co-operative Fertilizers Limited) has been decommissioned; therefore existing development setback requirements listed in the ASP are no longer required. The amendment to the Southeast Industrial ASP will reflect these changes. If approved, these changes will remove the 400 metre setback, allowing additional uses within the current land area.
This process will allow landowners within the existing 400 metre setback to obtain development permits for the additional uses not currently permitted in the setback including : schools, hospitals, child care facilities, special care facilities, and dwelling units.
City staff will prepare proposed plan amendments and provide opportunities for adjacent landowners, the Ward Councillor, various City departments, and other external agencies to provide input. The proposed amendment is developed in compliance to City plans and policies including the Municipal Development Plan, and other regional plans.
In order to amend the ASP, City staff will prepare a report for the Calgary Planning Commission (CPC)* making a recommendation on the proposed plan amendment.
Once CPC has made a recommendation, the proposed plan amendment will be advertised for a two-week period. It will then go to Council for a final decision. Council is required to hold a public hearing for all area structure plan amendments.
*The CPC is a committee appointed annually by City Council to make recommendations to Council on land use planning matters. The CPC can request changes and/or forward the report with their recommendations to Council.
