  • Off-site levies (OSL) are determined by multiplying the hectares of developable land by the total OSL rates for that benefitting area. If OSL have not been previously paid, it is likely that OSL are owing.
  • Hectares of developable land are determined through a subdivision plan which is completed by a professional Alberta Land Surveyor.
  • Final hectares of developable land (to be used when calculating the off-site levies owing) is determined by Planning & Development Services. This process forms the condition of approval.
