EIPD Development Plan

The purpose of a Development Plan is to provide legally adopted statements of the District’s policies toward land use management and development.  Our District is comprised of four municipalities;  RM of Gimli, Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton, Town of Arborg and the Town of Winnipeg Beach.

A Development Plan establishes the guidelines for land use planning and development activities.  It contains statements of the goals and objectives regarding land use and defines the policies by which land use compatibility and sustainability will be ensured. 

Municipal Zoning By-Laws are adopted and ensure that provisions regarding permitted and conditional uses, development standards, permits, etc. are in conformity with the policies of the Development Plan.

A fantastic resource for all planning questions, including processes, checklists, etc. can be found in the province's Planning Act Handbook.
