Take notice that on Monday, September 27, 2021, the Council of Loyalist Township will hold a virtual public meeting pursuant to The Development Charges Act, 1997, regarding proposed development charge rates and policies that will be applied throughout the Township. It is proposed that enactment of a development charges by-law by Council would occur on a date after the public meeting.


Development charges are levied against new development and are a primary source of funding for growth-related capital expenditures. The 2021 Development Charges Background Study relates to the provision of the following eligible development charge services: Emergency Services, Parks & Recreation, Development-related Studies, Services Related to a Highway (Public Works – Buildings & Fleet, Roads & Related), and Stormwater Management. 


Council is required under The Development Charges Act, 1997 to hold at least one public meeting to allow the public the opportunity to review and provide comments on the 2021 Development Charges Background Study, related staff reports and the proposed development charges by-law.
