General Development Plan
The GDP is Anne Arundel County’s comprehensive plan to guide land use in the County, capitalize on its assets and conserve critical resources. It is prepared in compliance with State requirements and guidelines. Adopted by the County Council, the GDP establishes policies and recommendations to guide land use decisions over a 20 year planning timeframe. All master plans and development regulations adopted by the County must be consistent with the goals, policies and recommendations of the GDP.
The County’s current GDP was approved in 2009 by the County Council. View the current GDP and the history of comprehensive planning in Anne Arundel County here:
