About the course

Learn how to design effec­tive sub­di­vi­sion lay­outs by exam­in­ing the dif­fer­ent process­es involved: tak­ing raw land through site analy­sis to land use and pre­lim­i­nary design, from den­si­ty con­sid­er­a­tions and cir­cu­la­tion pat­terns to spe­cial lay­outs, and from the pre­lim­i­nary inves­ti­ga­tion to the approval process. Apply these con­cepts to design and draft your own maps and sub­di­vi­sion plans.

What you will learn

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe the origins of the land use planning system in Alberta.
  • Visualize the relationship of planning and the regulatory framework within which large scale suburban development is achieved.
  • Describe the land development process and the role of developers in community development.
  • Identify the primary benefits of a “master planning approach” to land development.
  • Understand the main considerations in plan preparation.
  • Describe the legislative, planning and engineering considerations that inform subdivision design.
  • Understand the differing perspectives of the local municipality and the developer in securing subdivision approval.
  • Describe the basic considerations of subdivision design while exploring its design from “above, in and around.”
  • Examine why some subdivisions fail and what can be done about it.
