Hierarchy of all Statutory Plans

The Municipal Government Act identifies the hierarchy and relationship of statutory plans, so that each plan will be consistent with the plans above it and, in the event of an inconsistency, which provisions in what plan will prevail.

Land use planning in Alberta must follow plans at both the provincial and municipal level of government.

With the implementation of the Provincial Land Use Framework and the Alberta Land Stewardship Act, some planning decisions will be made at the regional level as well. Land use may also be subject to other federal and provincial regulations.

The chart below outlines the Town of Bassano’s hierarchy of land use planning decisions with links to the documents below.

Town documents include:

  1. Community Standards Bylaw
  2. Fire Bylaw
  3. Subdivision and Development Appeal Board Bylaw
  4. Assessment Review Board Bylaw
