Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP)

Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP)

Strathcona County and Beaver County are working on a draft Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP) to ensure that land use decisions are coordinated between the two municipalities. An intermunicipal development plan (IDP) is a high-level statutory plan jointly developed by two or more neighbouring municipalities, and where at least one member is not part of a growth management region.

Recent changes to the Municipal Government Act require that municipalities with common boundaries, and where at least one member is not part of a growth region, must adopt an IDP.

The draft IDP has been developed using the existing policy areas of both municipalities’ Municipal Development Plans (MDPs), and as a result the proposed IDP will not affect existing land use zoning.
