Though not mandatory, the Edmonton Design Committee (EDC) strongly encourages a “pre-consultation” screening of proposed developments. The intent of this step is to offer information and guidance regarding the formal presentation. A letter from the EDC is not provided after a pre-consultation meeting, and it is the responsibility of the applicant to take notes at this meeting.
Pre-Consultation Submission Requirements
The pre-consultation process allows the EDC to engage with the proponent at an early and conceptual stage of development.
Information required for a pre-consultation submission for a development permit application, rezoning application, or public project:
- Indication of the type of submission (Rezoning, Development Permit, etc.)
- Municipal address of the property
- Written description of the project
- Responses to Principles of Urban Design
- Site plan
- Landscape plan
- Preliminary elevations, drawings and renderings of the proposal
If required by the EDC or development planner, the proponent shall provide the following information:
- Additional perspectives
- Detailed landscape plan complete with hard and soft landscaping details
- Public art provision, including specifics
- An exterior lighting plan illustrating how the building’s architectural and sculptural characteristics have been highlighted
- Building sections
- Existing and proposed site grading
- Wind impact analysis
- Detailed Comprehensive Sign Design Plan to comply with Section 59 of the Edmonton Zoning Bylaw 12800
- General analysis of how the development has addressed Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED)
- Zoning Bylaw Compliance analysis
There may be a development that requires a special submission, such as a rezoning application, digital sign application, or exterior alterations such as a façade improvement. Please contact Administration or the file planner in order to discuss these requirements.
