April 2023 update:
Phase 2 of the Acheson industrial ASP Update Project is currently paused pending the completion of the County's Municipal Development Plan (MDP) Project. The policies contained in the MDP Project will guide and inform our work for Acheson Phase 2. The MDP Project is scheduled for completion in Spring of 2025. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Project Team below.

Acheson Industrial ASP Update Overview

What is it?

Parkland County’s Acheson Industrial Area Structure Plan (ASP) is a long-range planning document, originally adopted in 2014, that guides the future subdivision and development of the Acheson area. 

Why are we doing this?

The Acheson area continues to grow quickly, as development and economic trends change, it is important to review and update the ASP regularly to reflect these changes. Updates will ensure the document reflects the County’s Municipal Development Plan and supports the Edmonton Metropolitan Region Growth Plan.

How are we doing this?

We will be updating the ASP in two phases: 

Phase 1 - Completed

Administrative changes: revising document formatting, updating relevant maps and policies.

Phase 1 was completed in December of 2020.

Phase 2

Updating policy resulting from the MDP Project, re-designating a new land use concept for the southeast area of Acheson (“Agricultural Area B”), plus various policy and mapping revisions that are outstanding from Phase 1.

Phase 2 Details

The full scope of work for Phase 2 shall be determined once the MDP Project is complete. It may include a new land use concept for Special Study Area – Agricultural Area B, which is currently used for agricultural purposes.

  • Work with Enoch Cree Nation to revise language around interjurisdictional collaboration.
  • Work with developers on policies of their concern, such as Floor-Area-Ratio Standards, etc.
  • Address minor mapping revisions not covered under

  • Other miscellaneous housekeeping items.
