Trochu MDP Draft

The Town of Trochu is working with Palliser Regional Municipal Services (PRMS) to update the Town’s Municipal Development Plan (MDP) and we are looking for input from our residents and businesses.

Please help us by taking a look at the updated MDP draft and then answering a few questions on our survey (click here).

You can fill out the survey and email it to or drop it off at Town Office. You can also pick up a printed copy at the office if you’d prefer.

Thank you!

The development and use of land and buildings within the Town of Trochu is regulated by Trochu’s Land Use Bylaw (LUB), and amendments thereof, and Municipal Development Plan (MDP), as well as the Province of Alberta’s Municipal Government Act (MGA), with a goal of orderly economic and physical growth.

All new construction, renovations, demolition, home occupations, and subdivisions planned within the Town of Trochu require an Approved Development Permit and may require other permits through Palliser Regional Municipal Services (PRMS).  A Town of Trochu Approved Development Permit must be submitted to PRMS before these other permits (such as Building, Electrical, Plumbing, Gas, etc.) can be applied for.

Please see further down the page for more information on the Town of Trochu’s development process, as well as links to all relevant forms and documents.
