The Communauté d'agglomération Amiens Métropole is a communauté d'agglomération in the Somme département and in the Picardie région of France.

History[edit]

In 1991 a study was started by SIEPA (Syndicat Intercommunal d'Etude et de Amiénois Programming), which was the origin of Greater Amiens, established in 1994 with 18 municipalities.

Pursuant to the Chevènement Act, 2000, it was turned into a communauté d'agglomération, Amiens Métropole, which then encompassed 20 communes with the arrival of Allonville and Bertangles.

Since then, Amiens Métropole has continued to add more communes : 2003, with 21 municipalities, 2004 with 27 municipalities, and in 2007, 33 municipalities.
