Consultation has concluded

Development charges (DCs) are a funding source used to pay for the additional municipal infrastructure and services required to support new development allowing growth to pay for growth. These services include new or expanded water and wastewater systems, roads and transportation infrastructure, recreation facilities, parks, library facilities, fire services and more. They are paid by the developer or landowner at the building permit stage.

The Municipality of North Perth's development charges are required by legislation to be updated by summer 2019. The Municipality conducted a Development Charges Background Study to review growth-related capital projects needed to accommodate our growth. The information is used to update the proposed Development Charges By-law and development charge rates.
