CIVICS UPDATE: INFILL AND CONSTRUCTION PRACTICES


residential infill website

March 2017 - Do you have questions about infill and construction practices?
Visit the City of Edmonton’s new infill site City of Edmonton - Residential Infill
The site includes information on permitting and good construction practices for behaviour, safety, and potential damage to neighbours’ property. An infill project is the future home of your neighbour. Early cooperation and patience builds a good long-term relationship.

If Lendrum residents express sufficient interest, the Lendrum Community League can host a City of Edmonton presentation on permits and best practices for contractors. Contact civics@lendrum.org if you are interested. Please identify specific questions if you have any.
If there is sufficient interest the presentation would be in June at the Community Hall.
The presentation would focus on existing rules. Most of the information is on the City’s website or available through 311 and the presentation would highlight that information.

The presentation would not discuss the apartment building being considered for the north of Lendrum. A separate consultation process is underway for that project. Visit Capital Regional Housing Lendrum Redevelopment Of Lendrum Manor & Lendrum Villa for details.
