​The City of Edmonton and the Government of Alberta are developing a plan for a new neighbourhood in the Heritage Valley area.

A New Neighbourhood Area Structure Plan 

The proposed Neighbourhood Area Structure Plan (NASP) will establish a clear vision for this important node in Heritage Valley, providing a framework for the development of a complete community.

It will inform the development of a new hospital and health campus announced by the Government of Alberta in March 2017, and identify the alignment of the Capital Line South LRT extension and station location within the neighbourhood.

Accommodating a New Hospital and Health Campus

The provincial government has approved funding towards a new, state-of-the-art hospital and health campus in south Edmonton.

Planning for the services that will be delivered at the new hospital is currently underway. Site work is anticipated to begin in 2020, and the hospital is expected to open to the public in 2027.

Public Engagement

In late 2018 an engagement session (83 attendees) and online survey (399 responses) were conducted to seek public feedback on the healthy community vision for the neighbourhood plan.

The What We Heard Report summarizes participants feedback and outlines how this feedback will be incorporated into the draft neighbourhood plan.

Plan Details

Plan Area

The neighbourhood is located north of the approved Heritage Valley Town Centre, south of Ellerslie Road and west of 127 Street SW.

The 320 acre site is owned by the Government of Alberta, and was previously leased by the University of Alberta for crop research. It is currently identified as a Special Study Area under the Heritage Valley Servicing Concept Design Brief, which outlines the basic servicing and infrastructure requirements for the area.

The plan boundary will include the east portion of the Graydon Hill Neighbourhood Area Structure Plan.

Development of the Plan (NASP)

The proposed plan will allow for the zoning, subdivision, and future development of the area.

It will outline:

  • Future land uses
  • Proposed population densities
  • The location of the new hospital and health campus 
  • The location of major roads, utilities and the future LRT station
  • Future parks space and school sites

The NASP will comply with the Neighbourhood Area Structure Plan Terms of Reference.
