Access Approaches

Approach Policy

The Rural Municipality of Britannia No. 502 must ensure the safety of municipal roads and the protection of municipal drainage systems by regulating access approaches from private property to municipal roads within the Municipality, including the Lloydminster Planning District. Policy TS-013 (as approved under Bylaw 02-2023) has been developed with this in mind and provides standards for the construction of access approaches within the RM.

Please review TS-013 Road Approach Policy for more information.


Approach Applications

If you are planning on constructing an approach to access your property across a municipal road allowance, you will need to receive approval from the municipality prior to the construction of the approach. The proposed location will be inspected by the municipality to ensure proper drainage and  sight-line safety. All proposed approaches must be staked prior to inspection.
