Applications

Learn how to apply for the following development and planning applications:

Development charges

Development charges are one-time fees collected from new development to help pay for new infrastructure that is related to growth.

The Province of Ontario enacted the Development Charges Act which gives municipalities the authority to create development charges by-laws to help recover some of the capital costs incurred in providing services to residential and non-residential developments, while also setting limits on the types of infrastructure costs development charges can fund.

The Township of Uxbridge uses development charges to ensure that the cost of providing infrastructure to service new development is not borne by existing residents and businesses in the form of higher property taxes.

If you are planning a new development, you may need to pay development charges. Please review the Development Charges By-law and consult with us for the charges that will apply to a specific development.  You can also view our Development Charges Background Study page for further information.

Development charges calculations

The Township of Uxbridge’s development charges apply to most new buildings and some expansions. The Township of Uxbridge uses current development charges rates, based on these criteria, to calculate development charges:

  • In the case of residential development or the residential portion of a mixed-use development, based upon the number and type of dwelling units (ie single house, semi-detached house, row house or apartment); and
  • In the case of non-residential (ie. commercial, industrial or institutional) development or the non-residential portion of a mixed-use development, based upon the total floor area of such development.

The Development Charges by-laws may provide for credits, exemptions and special provisions for residential and non-residential development.

The Region of Durham and School Boards are responsible for setting their own development charge by-laws and rates. The Region of Durham and School Boards provide the Township of Uxbridge with the calculation of their development charges to be collected, based on information provided by the applicants.

Collecting development charges

Development charges are to be paid prior to the issuance of a building permit, unless otherwise specified in the development agreement.

All development charges (Township, Region and Education) are collected by the Township of Uxbridge and forwarded to the Region of Durham or the School Boards, as applicable.

Indexing of development charge rates

The Township of Uxbridge development charges for residential and non-residential are indexed annually on July 1st of each year in accordance with the most recent twelve-month change in the Statistics Canada Quarterly Construction Price Statistics, as prescribed by the Development Charges Act.

Treasurer's annual statement

The Development Charges Act requires the Treasurer of the municipality to annually provide Council a statement about each development charge reserve fund established under the Act. The statement reflects the opening and closing balances of each year, the current year's distribution of the development charges proceeds, any financing transfers and the interest earned on the fund.  A detail of the financing transfer to specific projects/accounts accompanies the statement. The Treasurer’s Annual Statement may be viewed by contacting the Township of Uxbridge, during regular business hours.
