Development Charges

Development charges are used to fund services usable by all who live within the Town of New Tecumseth.  These services include:

  • Fire and Rescue
  • Parks and Recreation Services
  • Public Works
  • Library Services
  • General Government
  • Joint Police Services
  • Roads and Related
  • Water & Wastewater Services

A Development Charge Background Study, led by Hemson Consulting Ltd., was adopted in 2018.  This comprehensive study forecasts growth and eligible local municipal servicing requirements.

Bill 138 received royal assent on December 10th and implemented amendments to the Development Charges Act that will come into effect on January 1, 2020.

The 2020 Statement of the Treasurer details the activity and balances relating to development charges.
