GVS&DD Development Cost Charge Bylaw
I started my development application process before the new Development Cost Charge (DCC) rates were approved. Am I subject to the new DCC rates?
New development cost charge bylaws are subject to “in-stream” provisions as determined by Section 568 of the
Local Government Act.
Local Government Act - Effect of bylaws adopted after application for rezoning, development permit or building permit submitted
568(2) - Subject to subsection (3), a development cost charge bylaw that would otherwise be applicable to the construction, alteration or extension of a building or structure has no effect with respect to that construction, alteration or extension if
- the building permit authorizing that construction, alteration or extension is issued within 12 months after the date the bylaw is adopted, and
- a precursor application to that building permit is in-stream on the date the bylaw is adopted.
If you had a precursor application (as defined in the Act) in-stream on May 1, 2018and a building permit in relation to that application’s construction, alteration or extension of a building is approved before April 30, 2019, you will not be subject to the new DCC rates and will be charged the previous DCC Rates.
Similarly, if under the old DCC bylaw your precursor application would qualify for a waiver or refund of DCCs, and the building permit in relation to that application is approved before April 30, 2019, then any waiver provisions available under the old DCC bylaw would apply to that building permit issuance.
