The Township is responsible for the collection of development charges in accordance with the Development Charges Act. Development charges assist in financing capital projects that are required to meet the increased need for services resulting from growth and development. 

Development charges:

  • are collected at the building permit approval stage;
  • help pay for the costs of providing the infrastructure required by new development.

Development Charge By-law No. 16-35 includes both development charges which are applicable on a municipal-wide basis and on an urban service area basis which is payable in addition to the municipal-wide charge.

The background study on the current development charges, along with a development charges informational pamphlet that provides the current development charge rates for all residential and non-residential development are available for review.

A new background study has been completed and is available for public review.
