Municipal Planning Hub

Welcome to the AUMA Municipal Planning hub.

The hub has been developed to provide members with a basic understanding of land use planning in Alberta. The material is divided into four main parts:

  • The status of recent Municipal Government Act amendments.

  • The purposes of planning.

  • A discussion of provincial and municipal land use planning roles, legislation and planning instruments.

  • A discussion of tools and means to achieve planning outcomes and Information on planning issues, trends and best practices.

The hub is designed for quick access by clicking on key terms that will take you to relevant section.  The Hub can also be downloaded in full as a pdf.  

The hub is intended to be a continuously evolving project. New material will be added as issues arise and as new concepts and ideas are identified.
