Rezoning times can vary from 90 to 160+ days for complex applications.

A good primer of the Edmonton Design Committee. In addition, general requirements of a submission. Presentations occur at the rezoning and development permit stage.

More information can be found on the city's Development Process page or by watching this video:

The development permit stage may include Environment Impact Assessments (there are multiple phases/types depending on whether remediation is required), Traffic Impact Assessments, and Parking Impact Assessment.

Building permit stage - ever wonder why construction sometimes hits a snag or delay? This is probably why. Safety code inspections take place throughout the building process.

Compiled information from the City of Edmonton.

That's one great article!!
Not sure if this is the best place for this article... Edmonton is not the only City with Zoning regulation problems -- typically administration in this area is about ten to twenty years out of date.

Some say 'old guard'; others count the number of planners/senior admin who live in St. Albert, but we must continue to provide flexibility to our development community, whilst choosing to respect those who currently reside there. A tricky balance, but one that needs to be more transparent, constructive and willing to love thy neighbour more often.
