City of Hamilton proposes 1,000% application fee increase!!!! WHAT?
City of Hamilton staff have proposed a staggering 1,000% price increase in their planning application fees.
I question this (as well as other larger municipalities….) The Municipal Act only permits municipalities to charge actual cost of the application processing.
They are not allowed to make a profit on applications, or help pay for other unrelated services.
Regardless, of the actual increase (once vetted through Council), there will be a cost increase.
If you have pending development plans, you should act on them now, and avoid any unnecessary cost increases.
Urban in Mind.
