Land Use Planning

Landmark Planning & Design is a leader in land use planning for both public and private sector clients in Manitoba. Whether it’s planning by-laws for Rural municipalities, secondary planning documents for the developers of Winnipeg’s new communities, or recreation master plans for small towns, our team of planners has the experience and expertise to deliver excellence. A few of our key land use planning services include:

Development Approvals

We specialize in guiding projects through the municipal approvals process, with the ultimate goal of achieving development entitlements through effective processes. Whether it’s a rezoning for large multi-family infill development, a multi-lot subdivision, or meeting conditions of approval for a new industrial park, we move projects from conception through to approval. Landowners, developers, and municipalities have retained our services for:

Infrastructure Planning

We have decades of experience working with engineering teams to deliver large infrastructure projects to development.  This work includes leading option evaluation processes in a multi-disciplinary setting while working carefully with local authorities and stakeholders to integrate local interest for bridge projects, highway projects, water projects and power projects.

Public Consultation & Stakeholder Engagement

Public Consultation and Stakeholder Engagement are key components of any planning process. Landmark Planning & Design’s team of engagement specialists has decades of experience leading consultation processes for complex, and often controversial, public and private sector projects. Our clients include municipalities, provincial departments, development proponents, resident groups, and utility companies, among others. Our areas of expertise include:

Our Logo Explained

The logo image plays on the idea of structure, being perfectly segmented into ‘building blocks’, fitting themselves together with the grid pattern, which suggests both an urban structure and a rural prairie section.  Upon study, one could also note an uppercase “L” (Landmark), a street corner, or an arrow – the latter being a directional mark for wayfinding, an indicator on a map, or a sense of direction and the beginning of a process. The colour (PMS 5615) is green/grey, meant to connote the collaboration between urbanism and landscape, while the typeface (DIN Mittleschrift) has a modern classic look, making it at once current and timeless.
