Public Notices

On September 17, 2019, Council passed the Public Notification Bylaw which provides for alternative methods of public notification of items required to be advertised under the Municipal Government Act (bylaws, resolutions, public hearings, meetings, and other things). 

This page is intended to keep residents informed on legislative services and planning processes in the community, whether it be upcoming public hearings or notices.

Development decisions and public hearings may also be advertised in the local newspaper(s). Copies of these advertisements can be viewed on our advertising page.

The following decisions are subject to certain conditions, and as per the Municipal Government Act, a person affected by these decisions has a right of appeal

Permitted Use Applications - The Municipal Government Act, provides that anyone may appeal a decision of the Development Authority by paying the required fee and providing reasons for the appeal in writing. 
 
Discretionary Use Applications - Notice that an application has been submitted for a Discretionary Use Development Permit is mailed to adjacent landowners, referral agencies, adjacent municipalities (where applicable), and other County departments. Notice that a decision has been reached about a Discretionary Use Development Permit application are sent to adjacent landowners, referral agencies, and adjacent municipalities (where applicable). The applicant or anyone else who objects to the decision may appeal to the Subdivision and Development Appeal Board (SDAB).
 
Subdivision Applications - Notices that an application has been submitted for a Subdivision Application are sent to adjacent landowners, referral agencies listed, adjacent municipalities (where applicable) and County departments. The applicant may appeal to the Subdivision and Development Appeal Board (SDAB) if they object to the final decision. None of the adjacent landowners or referral agencies are notified after a decision because they do not have the right of appeal.

Copies of any the permits are available for inspection by the public at the Wheatland County Administration Office during regular office hours.
