According to Alberta Municipal Affairs, a Subdivision and Development Appeal Board (SDAB) is a statutory body intended to perform an independent adjudicative function that hears complaints and functions like a court. It is an administrative board mandated by the Municipal Government Act and created by a municipality to carry our appropriate functions and procedures.
The SDAB hears appeals from municipal subdivision and development authorities. SDAB decisions shape the community and affect the lives of developers, neighbours, citizens and businesses. It is important that the public have confidence in the quality of these decisions and the decision making process.
