Development Charges

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. 

The following development charges are effective January 1, 2024.

Amendments introduced in Bill 109 required the treasurer's report relating to development charges by-laws and reserve funds to be available to the public.  


With Bill 109 receiving Royal Assent on April 14, 2022, there have been some amendments to the Development Charges Act, and while these changes are minor in scope (technical changes to section 43), the Township has taken proactive measures to ensure compliance.  DC Treasurer’s statements presented and accepted by the Council of the Township of Centre Wellington can be found here.
