Approaches & Culverts

A farmer may need a new or an additional access for agricultural purposes or an oil / gas company may need an approach into a lease site. A landowner may want to install a new approach or widen / upgrade an existing approach. In these instances the landowner / operator must first obtain the County's approval before installing or upgrading an approach. Please contact the Public Works department for approval of these types of approaches. Refer to Policy PW 2.6 Installation of Approaches and/or Culverts and its Attachment.

In other instances, an applicant for a subdivision or a development permit may be required as a condition of approval to construct a new or upgrade an existing approach. In these instances the landowner / applicant must first obtain the County's approval before installing or upgrading an approach. Please call the County's Planning and Development department if you want to discuss more details of these requirements.
