Planning Services – Development Plan – Development Plan
The current Development Plan is By-Law 190-08. It was adopted on July 21, 2011.
The current Planning Act came into force in 1976. This Act and its predecessors have provided a legislated process to ensure that land use and development proceeded in an orderly manner. The Act provides the foundation for Planning Districts. Planning Districts promote a coordinated approach to planning by involving more than one municipality and addressing issues that cross geographic boundaries. The Selkirk and District Planning Area Board was established on May 25th, 1977 and included the Town of Selkirk, R.M. of St. Andrews and R.M. of St. Clements. The R.M. of West St. Paul, formerly a part of the City of Winnipeg, joined in 1989. The Village of Dunnottar employed our services in January 2010. The Rural Municipality of East St. Paul joined our District on July 1, 2012. Please note that for both the Village of Dunnottar and the Rural Municipality of East St Paul, our current District Development Plan does not include these areas; each is governed by its own Development Plan.
Goals and Objectives of the Development Plan:
The Development Plan is a statement of the Planning District's goals for future development. By-law 190-08 provides the framework for all municipal land use decisions within the District. It replaced the Development Plan By-law 122, which succeeded the Basic Planning Statement of 1979, The Selkirk and District Planning Area Board Development Plan By-law 15 of 1981 and superseded the Provincial Land Use Policies.
