WESTBROOK COMMUNITIES LOCAL AREA PLANNING
Since 2019, the Spruce Cliff community had been part of a new city-led land use planning initiative, the Westbrook Communities Local Area Plan – The project includes the communities of: Wildwood, Spruce Cliff, Westgate, Rosscarrock, Shaganappi, Glendale, Killarney/ Glengarry, Glenbrook and the portions of Upper Scarboro/Sunalta West and Richmond that are west of Crowchild Trail.
Through the local growth planning process, the City will work with communities to create a future vision for how land could be used and redeveloped in the area – building on the vision, goals and policies outlined in Calgary’s Municipal Development Plan.
Note: The Westbrook Local Area Plan passed 3rd reading at council 2023 May- it is now a statutory document.
NEW DEVELOPMENT MAP FROM THE CITY
Residents will now be able to view plans and renderings for developments in their communities and make comments directly through the website.
Comments gathered from citizens help The City provide direction to applicants on their applications, which in turn creates better development outcomes in communities.
Stay informed about the developments in your neighbourhood and across The City by accessing the online Development Map at calgary.ca/development.
You can learn more about the planning process, your role and how to get involved at calgary.ca/planningoutreach
