Development Charges

Development charges are an important funding source for the City to help pay for the cost of infrastructure needed for future growth.  We also collect Education Development charges on behalf of the School Boards and Region of Durham Development charges on behalf of the Region. The final amounts will be determined after the plans in support of a building application have been reviewed.

Our 2015/2016 Development Charges Pamphlet covers the period from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016 only.
