The draft of the RM's new Official Community Plan (OCP) is nearing completion and it is anticipated that it will be ready for public review by the fall. You can contribute to our new OCP by sending in your best photos of everything that you love about the RM - whether it's a playground, a wildlife close-up, a harvest shot or your favourite walking path, we want to use it to spruce up our OCP!
Please email photos to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 1st, 2018.

Do I Need a Development Permit?
Development permits are required for the following projects:
- New homes
- New commercial or industrial buildings
- Any site work, grading, or pre-construction work
- Extensive interior renovations
- Accessory buildings such as a garage or a shop larger than 100ft2
- Moving a mobile home or RTM to a site
- Demolishing an existing building
Driveways and Approaches
Before building a driveway or approach, please submit the Driveway or Approach Construction/Expansion Application to the RM. There are no fees associated with the approval of a driveway or approach.
A development permit must be obtained prior to the commencement of any construction activity. If you are not sure if you need a development permit, please contact the Planning Department at (306) 771-2034.
What do I need to consider before proposing a development?
The more information Council has about your proposal, the better. The Development Review Criteria provides a list of considerations that should be addressed during the initial phases of development.
The RM's Official Community Plan identifies future growth areas and potential uses compatible with existing development. Take a look at our Land Use Map to see if your proposal fits in with the RM's future growth plans: RM of Edenwold Proposed Land Use Map
What do I need to submit to the Planning Department?
The Development Permit Application should be submitted to the RM after the developer has had an initial discussion with a planner to discuss the requirements and design specifics of the project. This will allow all parties to have the chance to address their needs before officially proceeding with surveyors or any legal processes.
