What is a precinct plan l.jpg

What is a Precinct Plan?

  • By 2031, The City of Winnipeg is expected to grow by more than 180,000 people.

  • The impact of this growth means that new communities need to be complete from the outset and provide long term sustainability.

  • A Precinct Plan is a document created to achieve this – it embodies several key directions and an inclusive process that leads to thoughtful and well designed communities.

  • A Precinct plan includes policies and maps that illustrate and define how the area will grow in terms of land uses, infrastructure, recreation and neighbourhood connections.
