Planning & Development

Current Appeals
And Permits

The Planning and Development Committee of the Garneau Community League endeavours to inform those residents who are interested, about matters related to City of Edmonton Bylaws, zoning changes, and development proposals. Information about relevant pending development applications requiring consultation can be found below. This list may not contain all applications. Development applications requiring consultation are those requiring variances to the bylaws, or those on a Direct Control zoned property.

Many development applications requiring variances can be approved by demonstrating consultation with affected neighbours, and the Garneau Community League can assist with that effort. We can host consultation meetings with area residents and can circulate plans for comments, making it easier for developers to demonstrate that they have consulted with affected residents.

Some developers may fear sharing plans before they are finalized, hoping instead to avoid the consultation process. Consultation is a part of the City of Edmonton development permit process. We can assure you that our aim is not to prevent changes to the neighbourhood, but to ensure that everyone can be happy with a new development. This is achieved through open dialogue. As you will see on a walk through the neighbourhood, there are many different sizes and styles of development. We take pride in the historic nature of many of the neighbourhood buildings, but this is also one of the most eclectic neighbourhoods in the City!
