The County of Grande Prairie Design Guidelines are intended to provide options for enhancing new development and existing communities.

These guidelines are primarily applied to areas being developed with a more urban form. The Design Guidelines Matrix illustrates which guidelines are relevant in each of the County's existing Land Use Districts.

The Guidelines can be used within the existing planning and development process to:

  • Provide direction for enhanced subdivision, site and building designs that go above and beyond the minimum Land Use Bylaw requirements and Minimum Design Standards for Engineering
  • Assist in the preparation of future Area Structure Plans or community design plans, as well as future updates to the Municipal Development Plan and Land Use Bylaw.
