City Application Review Process

  • The City (Administration) is responsible for reviewing the application, any required technical studies, applicable City policies and comments from the public (both submitted directly to The City and collected by the applicant) and may propose changes to the application.
  • The City notifies the public about development proposals via: letters to adjacent landowners, signs on the site, advertisements, and online at Calgary.ca/development.
  • The public can provide comments on development proposals directly to The City for consideration as part of The City’s review. Comments can be submitted through Calgary.ca/development in connection to individual applications.
  • The City encourages landowners/applicants to be a good neighbours and reach out to the community to discuss their intention to propose a new development; however, it is up to the landowner/applicant to determine if they will undertake outreach in connection with their project. When public sessions are hosted by applicants, The City often supports by attending to share information about City policies and/or The City’s application review & decision-making process.
  • For applications proposing a Land Use Redesignation (rezoning) and local plan amendment, City Administration is responsible for making a recommendation of approval or refusal to Calgary Planning Commission (CPC). Calgary Planning Commission makes a recommendation of approval or refusal to City Council for decision at a Public Hearing of Council.
  • For a Development Permit, The City Administration will act as the decision-maker as long as the site-specific Land Use District and Local Plan has been amended to support the proposed development form.

Land use redesignation (zoning) applications

  • A land use rede​signation is when the land use district (zone) assigned to a parcel of land is changed to a different land use district (zone).
  • To change the land use district (zone), the landowner must apply for a land use redesignation.
  • Land Use Redesignation Applications are often pursued by landowners who are hoping to build something that is not currently allowed on the site. Often, a change to the land use district (zone) is proposed to enable increased height and density of a building (compared to the current rules on the site) and/or to change the uses, or activities, that would be allowed to occur on the site as part of future developments.
  • Applications to rezone or redevelop that align with the vision of applicable local area plans, the Municipal Development Plan and other city policies are more likely to be approved.

Development permit applications

  • A development permit approves the design, location and use of a building or structure and must be obtained for new construction, renovations, businesses, and changes of use to existing buildings.
  • All development permit applications must meet the zoning regulations of the property, such as land use, lot dimensions, lot area, etc. The Land Use Bylaw outlines the uses and development rules associated to a district and parcel of land.
  • A development permit is written approval from the City that development plans align with the rules and regulations set out in both the Land Use Bylaw (LUB) and the Alberta Building Code.
