Support

Water & Wastewater Development charges assist the Municipality to finance a portion of the cost associated with the new infrastructure and municipal service expansion needed to support growth.

By-law

Council approved the Development Charge By-law and Part XII By-law on March 24, 2014.

The by-law charges are set out in the following schedule and apply to residential development based on the number and type of dwelling units and non-residential development based on non-residential gross floor area, as applicable.

Lands affected include all lands within the geographic area of the Municipality of Chatham-Kent and the By-law applies whether or not the land or use is exempt from property taxation.
