2018 Development Charges Background Study Addendum 1, May 16, 2018.

2018 Development Charges Background Study Addendum 2, June 19, 2018.

Following the receipt of written submissions from stakeholders and additional information provided by staff, a number of capital works were added and costs were refined subsequent to the April 25, 2018 DC Background Study.  The resulting impacts of these revisions can be found in the Addendum Reports dated May 16, 2018 and June 19, 2019.

An overview of the revisions contained within the Addendum Reports will be discussed at the June 25, 2018 information session and the July 23, 2018 public meeting.

Development charges are one-time fees charged by the Township on new properties to help offset the cost of specified services as outlined in the Development Charges Act.

By charging the builder these fees, the Township can ensure that the taxes of the current residents of Centre Wellington are not directly affected by this new development.

Development charges are controlled through the Township's Development Charges By-Law and are based on our Development Charges background study and update.

The following development charges are effective January 1, 2018.
