New Development Permit Notice Signs

Posted on February 15th, 2016

As of April 1, 2016, new development permit notice signs will be required on the sites of all new residential construction in mature and established neighbourhoods. 


Sign templates will be generated by the City of Edmonton from an approved template. Development permit applicants will be responsible for manufacturing, posting, and maintaining the signs, which will be generated from a City-approved template and include: 

  • contact information for contractor, development permit holder and/or landowner
  • the site address
  • a brief plain-language description and/or graphic of what has been approved
  • the City file number
  • contact information for 311

The mandatory signs must be posted in close proximity to the sidewalk within 14 days of the issuance of a valid development permit and remain posted until final occupancy is granted by the City.

The signs fulfill action 4 on Edmonton’s Infill Roadmap.
