Aster Neighbourhood Structure Plan

The City has received an application for the proposed Aster Neighbourhood Structure Plan (NSP) and a land use bylaw amendment with the proposed NSP. The proposed NSP covers ± 112 ha (277 ac) of lands described as NW 1/4 14-27-1-W5M and a Portion of NE 1/4 14-27-1-W5M, located on the north side of Airdrie by agricultural lands, west by 24 Street NW/ Range Road 12. The plan area is within the approved Davy Creek CASP and will be comprised predominantly of residential uses.

What is a Neighbourhood Structure Plan?

A Neighbourhood Structure Plan (NSP) is the second of five stages in the planning for these lands. An NSP guides and directs the specific land use, subdivision and development of the new community. The NSP provides details on the local street networks; the exact location of schools, parks and pathways; the distribution of housing types; architectural themes and the provision of essential services.

How does an NSP work?

Once an NSP has been approved, the lands will be rezoned. Following rezoning, the individual lots are created through subdivision and then construction of the new neighbourhood will commence.

How can you get involved?

As part of the upcoming planning process, the developers will be soliciting feedback from the public on the proposed plans. It is important that you take the opportunity to participate in shaping how our community grows.

In addition, a public hearing will be held to provide affected stakeholders a final opportunity to provide comments before the plans are adopted by Council.
