Development Fee Schedule

The Town of Kindersley encourages building and development in the community. In order to proceed with a project, there are several easy steps to follow. Here's  a breakdown of the process:

Preliminary Project Proposal/Review (PPP vs PPR)

Prior to beginning any new development, residential or commercial, the Town of Kindersley requests that a Preliminary Project Proposal (PPP) be submitted. The PPP provides a general overview of the project to help staff identify any general issues that will need to be addressed, and to avoid any delays later in the project.  Once the PPP has been received, our staff will contact you to arrange a consultation meeting either in person or by phone to discuss the project proposal. This meeting provides Town staff with a more comprehensive understanding of the scope of the development request.  Town staff will contact you within 5 business days of receiving the PPP.  There is no charge for the PPP.
The next step may be the Preliminary Project Review (PPR) in which the applicant will offer more specific detail on the project, answers specifics discussed in the PPP consultation, and helps the Town understand the detailed specific scope of the development request.  We, in turn will provide specific feedback, opinion and assist with the next step, the development application process. The meeting can take place in person or by phone, at your convenience, and may take up to one hour or more. Sometimes certain steps must be taken in order for a development project to meet Kindersley bylaws or building regulations and these are identified in the PPR. If this is the case, written confirmation of the required steps will be provided by us. There is a fee for this detailed review and reply. The Preliminary Project Review fee is $325.

Development Permit

A Development Permit approves the appearance, location, size and use of a building in any particular lot. Certain buildings and land uses are only allowed in certain areas of town in order to create comfortable residential environments as well as prosperous business settings.
Development fee is $40.  Development and Building Permit Fee Schedule

Re-Zoning

If the suggested development does not align within the current zoning requirements of a lot, the developer can appeal the zoning classification, or request to have the Zoning Bylaw amended to accommodate the type or use of development.
Rezoning fees are $675.  Development and Building Permit Fee Schedule

Building Permit

Building Permits are meant to ensure that your construction project is safe and is built to provincial standards. The permit fee covers the cost of inspections by our certified Building Inspector. These fees are based on construction values. Development and Building Permit Fee Schedule.
