Sandhill Estates

On September 14, 2017 Lacombe County Council endorsed the Sandhill Estates Concept Plan, granted third reading to Bylaw 1236/17, and granted conditional subdivision approval for a new 14 lot Country Residential Estate subdivision.


The property was previously zoned Country Residential "R-CR" District and has now been rezoned to Country Residential Estate District "R-CRE" which allows for smaller lot sizes and individual services. The development which consists of lots ranging in size from 0.50 – 0.53 ha (1.25 – 1.33 ac) lies within the existing Burbank subdivision, south of the Town of Blackfalds.


Some of the features of the development include children’s play equipment, a looped nature trail that meanders it’s way throughout the wooded areas of the development to a constructed wetland. There will also be a 6 stall parking area at the trailhead for local residents and general public to access these amenities.  


Please refer to the Concept Plan below and should you require further information or have any questions, please contact Peter Duke, Planner/Development Officer with Lacombe County at 403-782-8389 or
