An Area Concept Plan (ACP) provides guidance to landowners who are interested in subdividing or developing their properties in the future. These types of plans generally outline acceptable uses, forms and densities of development and the infrastructure required to facilitate such development.

The Country Residential Area Concept Plan was originally adopted in 2011 to facilitate the development of country residential subdivisions. Through the use of the document over the past decade we have heard from landowners about challenges they have experienced in using the plan.

Strathcona County’s land use plans contribute to building a top community in which to live, work and invest.  The proposed changes to the Country Residential Area Concept Plan are intended to provide clear, user friendly guidance to landowners who may wish to develop their properties in the future. These changes also ensure that the County’s infrastructure is managed efficiently and that the document aligns with current bylaws.
