Planning & Development
What is an IDP?
An Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP) is a high-level policy plan created between adjacent municipalities and provides a forum for neighbour municipalities to work together. An IDP is designed to foster cooperation and integrated development near the municipal boundaries so that unnecessary costs and negative impacts for the municipalities are avoided. The principles and objectives established in the IDP guide the growth of future development by identifying general locations for major land uses and servicing. In addition to guiding future growth, if there is a disagreement between municipalities on development, IDPs provide a framework for dispute resolution.
