2014 Development Officer's Annual Report

Development throughout the MD of Wainwright was steady in 2015, with 57 development permits issued and a total dollar value of $18,392,500. There were 21 new homes, 20 shops/garages and 16 other developments. There was significant commercial and industrial development totaling $4,590,000 which will be a long-term benefit for our future assessment.

The Provincial Government issued 28 drilling permits throughout the municipality and the municipality granted 29 pipeline road-crossing approvals during 2015.

The MD received 20 applications for subdivision during 2015, of which 18 have been approved, with a total of 21 new parcels being created and 3 parcels being increased in size.

The MD would like to remind all residents that any development over 150 square feet requires a building permit from Superior Safety Codes. Non-permanent developments do not require a MD of Wainwright development permit but may require a Superior Safety Codes building permit. If you have any questions regarding development, please contact our office at 780-842-4454. Development permit and subdivision applications can be picked up at the MD office or downloaded from our website at www.mdwainwright.ca.

All provincial regulations shall be adhered to and permits for building, electrical, plumbing and heating, gas and private sewer systems shall be obtained as required. The provider of the Safety Codes Compliance Services within the Municipal District of Wainwright is Superior Safety Codes Inc. Permit application forms for all of the Safety Codes Disciplines that are covered by Superior Safety Codes are available at the MD office or directly from Superior Safety Codes Inc.

The Municipal District of Wainwright continues to encourage development and we welcome the opportunity to discuss all new proposals.
