Municipality Releases Information Package for Those Rebuilding on Zero Lot Line Properties

(Fort McMurray, AB – May 10, 2017) – The Municipality has released an information package for home owners and contractors outlining code compliant development options for rebuilding homes on zero lot line properties. 

In response to inquiries received by the Planning & Development Department, this information package will provide clarity on zero lot line development options that are in compliance with both the Land Use Bylaw and the Alberta Building Code.

A zero lot line property is a residential development where buildings can be located on one or more property lines with no yard between the building and the property line. Homes built on zero lot line properties include single family homes, duplexes and triplexes.
