Development Charges are collected by the Township of West Lincoln to recover the capital costs associated with residential and non-residential growth within the municipality.

The current Development Charges By-law was adopted by Council in June 2019, taking effect July 15, 2019. The by-law was developed in conformance with the Development Charges Act.  The by-law sets out the:

  • development charges for residential and non-residential development
  • apportionment of the charges for the various services
  • method of collection 
  • conditions under which a development is subject to the charge and the exemptions

The Township has undertaken an amendment to the 2019 Development Charges Background Report and the Township’s 2019 Development Charges By-law No. 2019-51, as amended,  in order to comply with changes legislated through Bill 108, More Homes, More Choices Act, 2019 and Bill 197, COVID-19 Economic Recovery Act, 2020. A public meeting will be held on August 11, 2022 at 6:30pm where the background study will be presented and the public is invited to make comments.
