New Scugog development charges in effect from May 28

The Council of the Township of Scugog has passed Development Charges By-law 16-24 on April 29, according to a notice issued by the township clerk.

It said the development charges are imposed against development and redevelopment to pay for capital costs for the following services: Library Services, Fire Services, Parks and Recreation, Services Related to a Highway: Public Works: Buildings and Fleet, Bylaw Enforcement and Court Services, Development Related Studies*, and Township Engineering (includes: Services related to a Highway and Storm Water Drainage and Control Services).

The charges apply on a “per unit” basis for new residential development or redevelopment and on a “square metre” basis for new non-residential development or redevelopment. The charges are applied uniformly across the township. A key map has not been provided as the municipal-wide charges apply to all lands located within the boundaries of the township, the notice said.

Schedules 1 and 2 (below) set out the development charges imposed by the by-law. The charges will apply to all new residential and non-residential development subject to rules in the by-law that determine if a development charge is payable in any particular case and the amount of the charge.

The development charges imposed by the by-law will come into effect on May 28, 2024, the notice said.
