Q: What is the Lot Grading approval procedure?



Lot grading plans have been a part of the approval process for residential properties since 1989. The plans are required for all new developments and are approved by the Drainage Services branch, of Asset Management and Public Works Department on behalf of City Council. Lot Grading Plans include elevations, surface grades, lot type and other information required for grading.

The city of Edmonton requires lots in new subdivisions to conform to the approved Surface Drainage Plans (Lot Grading Plans). The Lot Grading Details provided within the guidelines give examples of different Lot Types and drainage patterns. The Approval Procedure is usually done in 2 stages. The Rough Grade Stage (clay) is generally the responsibility of the home builder and the Final Grade Stage (topsoil) is generally the responsibility of the homeowner.
