New Homes & Additions

The Red River Planning District is responsible to ensure that submitted building plans and blueprint drawings meet the Manitoba Building Code requirements and, the placement of the dwelling or addition on the property meets the requirements of the applicable Zoning By-Law. New Home building permits and plumbing permits are issued concurrently. Inspections are provided according to the complexity of the plans submitted and are unique to the house or addition being built.

We encourage you to submit your application well in advance of your project start date. Exact processing times will be dependent on the complexity of your application and the total number of applications received. Applications for projects that are submitted in the busy construction season (April to September) may take longer to process.

Certified Professional Plan Submission - Professional Home Builders Only

An option is being offered for Part 9 buildings (i.e. single family dwellings or buildings that are 3 stories or less and less than 600 m2 in area), where a professional engineer would under seal submit a letter stating that they take responsibility for the design/plan and construction as per plans. This would then eliminate the need to do a full plan review by the District. Zoning and other by-law reviews would still occur and inspections would still be completed in the same manner as they are completed today. The intent is to streamline approvals for these types of permits. The following permits will be considered as part of the Certified Professional Program.

  1. Single Family Dwellings
  2. Two Family Dwellings
  3. Additions to Single Family and Two Family Dwellings
