Access Approach Approvals

County of Paintearth No. 18 Policy No. 620 regulates access/approach applications within the County.

Oil Companies and Land Surface Companies are required to forward their request to construct or utilize an existing approach to the County Development Officer.

Every Access Approach Application must include:
a. $200.00 application fee per access approach requested (including GST).
b. Legal Land Location.
c. Site Survey and sufficient application details required to process the request.
d. Notification that the approach has been properly identified and is ready for inspection by County personnel. Physical identifiers of the proposed or existing approach must be visible during inspection or the application will be denied.

Notification of approval or denial is forwarded to the Oil Company/Surface Land Company in writing via fax with the original application and approval/denial filed for reference.

Applications that are approved must meet a number of criteria to ensure the safety of the traveling public and the condition of the road allowance is satisfactory. County personnel inspect access approach approvals (and those denied) to ensure the stated conditions are met.
