Airport Vicinity Protection Area

In recognition of the economic benefits generated from a 24-hour airport operation, the City of Winnipeg established the Airport Vicinity Protection Area (AVPA) Planned Development Overlay 1 (PDO-1) under Schedule D of the Winnipeg Zoning By-law 200/2006. The AVPA defines land uses and development restrictions in areas surrounding the airport and along designated flight paths in an effort to reduce residential exposure to aircraft noise.

Winnipeg was one of the first Canadian cities to adopt a Land Use Plan of this nature.
