Service modifications for Planning and Development Services
In light of recent direction received from public health authorities in Alberta on COVID-19 (novel Coronavirus), Strathcona County has implemented additional preventative measures to limit the spread of infection and, ultimately, to keep our employees, customers, community and visitors healthy and safe.
Please note: Our department office at County Hall (2001 Sherwood Drive), is open for application drop-off for electrical, gas and plumbing applications. Alarm permit applications may be dropped off at the RCMP detachment. Fire permit applications are not currently being accepted in-person. For assistance, please contact Strathcona County Fire Prevention at 780-449-9651 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We encourage residents to take advantage of our online permit application system where contractors, residents and businesses can apply and pay for electrical, plumbing, gas, deck, fire and alarm permits. We are also accepting all applications through mail and email and working diligently to respond to all email and phone inquiries.
Any questions can be directed to 780-464-8080.
