Public Hearing for Bylaw 736-P-11-17

At the November 14 Coaldale Town Council meeting, Council considered a number of minor amendments to the Land Use Bylaw including changes to how shipping containers are regulated.

The biggest change, should the bylaw pass, would allow resident to keep containers on their property once a year for a period of time not to exceed 14 days.

If residents require more than one period of time or for a time period of more than 14 days, they will be required to apply for a permit.

In addition, if someone wishes to use a shipping container as a shed, a garage or any other part of a building or structure, the container would be required to be altered to fit in with its surroundings. When it becomes a building or structure it then comes under the Alberta Building Code.

A Public Hearing on the proposed amendments to the bylaw will be heard in Council Chambers on Monday, December 11, 2017 at 5:45 p.m. The public is welcome to attend and will be allowed time to address the proposed changes.

Anyone with questions in advance to the hearing can contact planner@coaldale.ca or call 403-345-1304.
