Schedule H of the Municipality’s Fees and Charges By-Law contains the municipal Building Related Fees. Pursuant to the Building Code Act 7.(6) a Public Meeting is to be held when fee revisions are proposed to give Council and the general public the opportunity to ask questions, express concerns and discuss the proposal, prior to any decision by Council, relative to the proposed revisions.

The Effect of the proposed Fee Revisions adjustments are intended to reflect the true costs of administering the various Building Permit categories and to ensure that the general tax revenues are not required to subsidize those Building Permit processes, as per BCA 7.(2). These proposed revisions are identified on the attached draft Schedule H, highlighted and reflect the following amendments: Clarify the square footage charge for different types of building components, introduces new fees for delayed final inspection requests associated with obtaining compliance.

The proposed new schedule is attached for review.
