Council Denies Application for Proposed Bearspaw Area Gravel Pit

Rocky View County Council voted to refuse a land use re-designation application after concluding two days of public hearings. The application by Lehigh Hanson Materials Ltd. for the Scott Pit site in Bearspaw was open for public submissions in support of or opposition to the project.

Council held a virtual public hearing due to public health restrictions that allowed for written, video, and audio submissions via email, and received 83 videos in opposition, 476 letters in opposition, and 15 letters in support. In addition, 267 written email submissions were received during the two-day public hearing.

More information about the Special Council Meeting relating to this application, held February 2, can be found at

Council denied previous applications for this location in 1994 and in 2010.
