The City requires all applicants seeking direct control rezonings to undertake consultation before submitting a formal rezoning application for processing.
From 2016 through 2017, Capital Region Housing undertook a unique new approach to the required pre-application engagement process.
December 4, 2017
The applicant sent out notices to all 626 landowners in the Lendrum Place neighbourhood, the Lendrum Place Community League, and the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues asking for feedback on the final concept introduced at the April 2017 phase 4 open house. This notification is part of the City’s required pre-application process for Direct Control zoning proposals.
The applicant, Capital Region Housing Corporation, received four responses to the notification:
- One regarding City rezoning procedures generally
- Two supporting the proposed rezoning
- One opposing the project
