Development agreements

Development agreements are legal contracts between a municipality and landowner or developer that set conditions for how to develop a site. Development agreements are often required for subdivisions and may be required as part of a development permit.

You must apply to enter a development agreement with the Town for your subdivision or development. Once your application is received, the Town uses a development agreement template that contains all standard provisions and only requires schedule updates to complete a draft agreement for your project. 

Development charges and off-site levies

Development charges are costs collected to build new infrastructure outside or “off” a development site. New infrastructure may include new or extended roads, water, sanitary and storm water infrastructure, and the land required for each. This infrastructure is necessary to serve new developments and support growth.

Off-site levies are a type of development charge. We have authority to collect development charges through the Municipal Government Act and Off-site Levy Bylaw 2648/D&P/21. We calculate development charges based on the summary of off-site levy rates by area (per net hectare) based on the Town of Stony Plain 2021 Off-site Levy Report.
