Developers in the Nisku Business Park and parts of the East Vistas and Saunders Lake areas are required to pay fees called off-site levies to help cover the infrastructure costs associated with new developments and subdivisions.
The Greater Nisku and Area Off-Site Levy Policies and Procedures outlines exemptions and contributions. Visit our taxes and fees page to learn more about the requirements and costs associated with off-site levies in Leduc County.
If you want to divide a parcel of land into smaller lots, you need to get approval from Leduc County. After the subdivision is approved, it can be registered and separate land titles will be issued by the Alberta Land Titles Office.
Learn more about the subdivision process.
Safety codes permits
Construction or safety codes permits are issued under the authority of the Safety Codes Act. Through the issuance of safety codes permits, Leduc County supports economic viability by making the municipality a safe and desirable place to live and work.
Before you begin work on a building, electrical, plumbing or gas project or private sewage installation, you will require a safety codes permit. Timelines for issuing safety codes permits vary; for more information specific to your project, contact our Safety Codes team by email or at 780-979-2113.
