On March 16, 2020, the City of Calgary passed Encroachment Bylaw 9M2020 and rescinded Encroachment Policy CS008. This change will be of interest to lawyers with clients who have interests in land in Calgary.
The previous Encroachment Policy has been in place since 1996. The new Encroachment Bylaw 9M2020 is supported by a set of Encroachment Guidelines and Application and Encroachment Fees.
The Encroachment Guidelines outline how the City of Calgary will handle all types of encroachments onto city properties and interests and the Application and Encroachment Fees outline the cost of various types of encroachments onto city properties and interests.
