Civil Land Development

Civil Land Development Technologists work closely with planning staff on the development approval process. Their expertise with technical requirements helps ensure that infrastructure in the Town of Cochrane is designed and installed in accordance with local standards. The department is involved in capital projects, subdivisions, development permits, building permits, shallow utilities, stormwater management and homeowner drainage/grading concerns.
