The Municipality is holding a public meeting to present and obtain input on the proposed Development Charges By-Law and underlying Background Study.  The proposed changes relate to an area-specific charge for regional stormwater management services in the Northwest Quadrant of the Municipality.  The public meeting will take place on Tuesday, April 3, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. at the North Grenville Municipal Centre (285 County Road 44, Kemptville).

Below is a link to the Background Study. Any comments can be expressed at the public meeting or put in writing addressed to Clerk Cahl Pominville by email or mail addressed to 285 County Road 44, Kemptville, ON, K0G 1J0.


The following information is intended only as a guide.  Applicants are directed to the Development Charges Act, 1997 and the relevant by-laws and the background study and should consult with the Planning & Development Department to determine how the charges apply to specific development proposals.   

What are Development Charges?

Development charges are fees on new development.  They are imposed to help finance the expansion of infrastructure and services as the community grows.  The charges help to protect existing taxpayers by having growth pay for growth.

The North Grenville Municipal Council passed By-Law No. 72-14 which came into effect on September 8, 2014 under Section 2 of the Development Charges Act, 1997.  This By-Law establishes Municipal-wide development charges.

The development charges imposed under the By-Law are required to pay for the capital costs associated with the increased need for Municipal services arising from new development in the North Grenville. The development charges imposed under the By-Law are as follows:
