The District would like to take this opportunity to remind the community that with construction, whether it be residential or commercial, there is the potential that Development Cost Charges (DCCs) may be applicable. DCCs are a means by which a local government can offset the costs associated with infrastructure and the expansion of existing local services through the creation and implementation of DCCs.
In January 2007, Council received a report from Koers Engineering regarding DCCs in Lantzville: DCC Report - Koers Engineering (January 2007) and on April 16, 2007, Council of the District of Lantzville adopted Development Cost Charge Bylaw 52. As a result, the District of Lantzville is in a position to charge and collect DCCs as it relates to development and/or construction.
Individuals considering construction of single family residences, commercial buildings, etc., within the District of Lantzville are encouraged to contact Frank Limshue, Community Planner at 250.390.4006 or email email@example.com to determine whether Development Cost Charges are applicable.
