Proposed Neighbourhood Structure Plan guiding the future development for a new neighbourhood in the Big Lake Area.

The City of Edmonton has received a draft neighbourhood structure plan (NSP) for the Pintail Landing Neighbourhood. This neighbourhood is located in northwest Edmonton, north of Yellowhead Trail and west of Anthony Henday Drive.

Neighbourhood Structure Plans describe the general pattern of development for a new residential neighbourhood and guide the next development stages, including zoning, subdivision, infrastructure design and construction.

The proposed Pintail Landing NSP outlines:

  • Design vision and development objectives
  • Future land uses, including commercial, institutional and residential
  • Expected population densities
  • Cycling and pedestrian (active modes) network
  • The location of major roads and utilities
  • Space for parks, natural areas, and a school site

The draft plan will allow for the zoning, subdivision, and future development of the area.

Read the draft Pintail Landing Neighbourhood Structure Plan (12.6MB).

Key Features of the Plan

  • Natural Areas and wetland conservation 
  • A future public transit centre at the west edge
  • Commercial area to support future residents 
  • A mix of housing types from low to medium density
  • A future population of approximately 4,500 people
  • Several stormwater management facilities 
  • Open spaces and a future school site
  • Maintaining the existing Glendale Golf Course & Country Club

The draft Pintail Landing Neighbourhood Structure Plan land use map illustrates the development concept. (Note: the draft map will be updated if changes are made during the review process.)

Review Process

The NSP Process Chart shows the general application process. 


An application was first made for the Pintail Landing NSP together with the Kinglet Gardens NSP in 2013. The plan went through a full technical review and a public meeting was held on October 14, 2014 to provide information about the proposed plan and the process.

The Kinglet Gardens NSP was approved by Council in 2016 and the Pintail Landing NSP application was put on hold.

A revised application was submitted in the summer of 2017. A letter providing information about the application was sent to landowners within 60 m of the Pintail Landing area, as well as the associated community leagues and Area Council.

A full review of the NSP and technical documents has started. The application may be revised through the review process.

Public Engagement 

A public engagement session is not yet scheduled. Once a date and time is established, it will be posted online. Surrounding landowners will be notified by mail. 

Public Hearing Schedule

A Public Hearing date was scheduled for Monday August 26, 2019. The decision to approve the plan will be made by Council.
