The Land and Property Rights Tribunal (LPRT) hears appeals of municipal decisions that deny applications to amend statutory plans or land use bylaws to be consistent with specific provincial authorizations. See Sections 619(5) 488(1)(h) of the Municipal Government Act (MGA) for further information.
Section 619 of the MGA also states a license, permit, approval or other authorization from the Natural Resources Conservation Board (NRCB), Energy Resources Conservation Board (ERCB), Alberta Energy Regulator (AER), Alberta Energy and Utilities Board (AEUB) or Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) prevails over any statutory plan or land use bylaw.
The LPRT Residual Procedure Rules apply to these types of appeals.
No cost to file an appeal.
