Conurbation community


Dernière mise à jour le :13/10/2016


A conurbation community is an EPCI grouping together several municipalities forming, on its creation date, a set of over 50,000 inhabitants, all adjoining and without enclaves, around one or more centre municipalities with over 15,000 inhabitants. These municipalities are joined together with a view to developing and managing a joint urban development project for their territory.


Conurbation communities were created by the Law of 12 July 1999 on the reinforcement and simplification of intermunicipal cooperation.
