As a Planning District, our office serves the Rural Municipalities of West St. Paul, St. Clements, and St. Andrews, the City of Selkirk and the Village of Dunnottar, as established by Order-in-Council. The Planning District objectives are to promote the optimum economic, social, environmental and physical condition of the area. Under the authority of The Planning Act, it is the responsibility of the SDPAB to implement a Development Plan for the District. Our office seeks to enhance and encourage development within these municipalities, in accordance with the appropriate Zoning By-law and the Planning District Development Plan. Please note that the Village of Dunnottar currently has its own Development Plan 814-05 exclusive from our District Development Plan; and, The Rural Municipality of East St. Paul currently has its own Development Plan 2007-14 exclusive from our District Development Plan.
