With the realities of extreme flooding along Brandon’s Assiniboine River Corridor, the City of Brandon, in consultation with residents, developed a vision for this area.

In June 2019, the City met with the community to discuss development options in the floodplain area, also known as “The Flats”. As a result of that discussion, we are proposing a vision for future development in The Flats to balance the desire for development with the need to protect people and property from future flooding events. This vision was shared at a Public Open House event on December 12, 2019, at the Riverbank Discovery Centre.

The city spent January to May of 2020 drafting the policies and maps. We hosted a webinar in June 2020 to consult with the public about the draft plan policies. The draft plan and supporting documents are now available for public comment. You may provide comments about the draft plan to Community Planner, Sonikile Tembo at s.tembo@brandon.ca or 204-729-2113.

To listen to recordings of the two June 2020 webinars, please click here for the noon webinar or here for the 5:00pm webinar.

 

The final draft of the plan was adopted by Council in November 2020. This is a living document and will continue to be reviewed and revised as necessary.

Southwest Brandon Secondary Plan - Infrastructure Amendments

The City of Brandon is updating the Southwest Brandon Secondary Plan to facilitate the long term planning of infrastructure in southwest Brandon. The proposed changes provide clarity regarding:

  • phasing of development
  • funding of off-site infrastructure
  • infrastructure oversizing
  • infrastructure standards

 

Oversized Services Policy

A major part of development can include the necessity to oversize infrastructure to benefit future developing lands. As a relevant section of the upcoming Development Agreement Paraters document; the Engineering Department has been preparing a draft policy regardin the oversizing of infrastructure and the recovery of costs of third party benefit. Below is the first draft of the policy to date. Development Services is currently working to improve this policy and updates will be provided in the near future.
