Municipal Development Plan

Municipal Development Plan

The Municipal District of Taber Municipal Development Plan Bylaw No. 1723 (M.D of Taber MDP), adopted in 2004, is a long-range planning tool serving to guide future growth and development toward the community’s desired future.  The vision, goals and policies of the M.D. of Taber MDP provide strategic direction to inform the actions and decisions of the municipality, landowners and developers with respect to land use matters. 

Every municipality in Alberta is required to adopt a MDP by bylaw.  In accordance with the Municipal Government Act, a MDP is considered a statutory plan and must be consistent with the South Saskatchewan Regional Plan (the provincial regional plan applicable to our region) and any applicable Intermunicipal Development Plans.

The M.D. of Taber MDP provides policy direction in a broad area of issues, such as:

  • Future Land User & Development
  • Subdivision Policies & Criteria
  • Hamlets and Localities
  • Municipal Reserve
  • Municipal Services
  • Environmental Considerations
  • Intermunicipal Coordination
  • Implementation

Consideration of the MDP is an integral component in the planning process.  Persons interested in pursuing subdivision and development are encouraged to contact the M.D. of Taber to discuss the planning process and the relevance of the MDP to their project.
