Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada is the approving authority for the development and operation of telecommunication antenna structures. However, the Town must be consulted for input on their placement within Town limits. Under the Town of Okotoks Telecommunication Antenna Structures Siting Protocols, Planning Services is responsible for reviewing these submissions on the Town’s behalf and, depending on the nature of the proposal, a letter of support (concurrence) or non-support (non-concurrence) is sent to the wireless service provider upon completion of its review of the proposal.
Any proponent considering a new telecommunication antenna structure or changes to an existing structure, is encouraged to contact Planning Services, at the contact information below, for a pre-submission consultation to identify preliminary issues of concern prior to making their submissions. To submit an online inquiry, please use the contact online link below.
