Winnipeg zoning bylaws
The Winnipeg zoning bylaws divide each part of the city into zoning districts to separate residential, commercial and industrial land. Each zoning district has regulations that describe how land can be used and the types of structures/buildings that can be developed. Certain land uses are permitted outright, others are permitted with conditional approval, and some are prohibited. There are also rules for the location and the size of structures/buildings, such as lot coverage, required parking and minimum landscaping requirements.
It is important to review zoning bylaw requirements before applying for a development permit.
