Aggregate Site Development Plans Approved
Wednesday, September 27, 2017
Rocky View County Council has approved revised Master Site Development Plans (MSDP) for three aggregate extraction and processing operations along Highway 567 near Range Road 40.
In July of this year, Council approved land use re-designation applications for the sites, and requested the three companies work together to ensure their MSDPs minimized impacts on the surrounding area.
Hughes Gravel Pit/Lafarge Canada, Summit Gravel Pit/Mountain Ash Limited Partnership, and BRADI Gravel Pit/McNair Sand & Gravel presented plans that included provisions for noise mitigation, transportation network improvements, site emissions, groundwater monitoring, and roadway safety.
Each MSDP provides a framework for the detailed design of the separate aggregate developments and guides the final conditions to be imposed on any future Development Permits issued by the County.
The MSDPs were approved under current aggregate development considerations, the County Plan, and the County’s Land Use bylaw. Rocky View County is currently developing an Aggregate Resource Plan, which will provide performance standards and policies for future aggregate development in the County. That plan is expected to be presented to Council in the second quarter of 2018.
