What is an IDP?
An IDP is a plan that is developed between neighbouring municipalities and has a set boundary. The document outlines future land uses, policies and objectives, which the municipalities have agreed upon. The Plan helps establish policies for cooperation, development, and land uses.  The original plan was adopted in 1993 and was last updated in 2007.

Who Does it Affect?
An IDP affects those property owners whose lands are located within the IDP boundary. The IDP provides the property owners with appropriate land uses and development options for their land based on their proximity to existing residential, industrial, agricultural or commercial uses; environmental features; and proximity to major transportation routes. The IDP helps ensure that future development can be integrated into existing neighbourhoods and will work alongside established land uses.

A draft version of the Intermunicipal Plan is available for your review.
