Preparing to Apply
Review the Zoning Regulations
Not all residential properties have the same zoning regulations. Your proposed project will need to fit with the zoning regulations of the area where you plan to build.
To confirm a project’s property zoning, use the City of Edmonton’s interactive zoning map.
- Go to maps.edmonton.ca
- Enter the property’s address in the fields on the left and click ‘Find Address’
- The property’s ‘Current Zone’ and ‘Overlays’ will be highlighted.
Things like type of development, lot dimensions, lot area and placement of buildings will all be assessed before your project can be approved, as part of the Development Permit application.
If there is an existing house or accessory building, such as a detached garage, on the property to be demolished, you will need to apply for a demolition permit.
