Planning Application Fees
On September 18, 2018, City Council repealed Bylaw No. A-52, as amended being “A Bylaw to provide for Various Fees and Charges” and replaced it with a new Fees and Charges Bylaw A-53 that adds and adjusts certain fees and charges for certain services or activities provided by the City of London. The link to the new By-law A.53 can be found below.
The increase in planning application fees are intended to help reach 30% cost recovery for expenditures for the review of these applications, with consideration for municipal comparators and the impacts of individual fee increases. A brief summary of the changes is provided as follows:
- A new fee for Pre-application Consultation is intended to allow for some cost recovery and to encourage proposals to proceed to a development application. This proposed fee will be refunded with the submission of a development application.
- A new fee for Compliance Inspections will be charged after the second inspection conducted by staff. This fee provides for additional cost recovery beyond agreement compliance costs built into base application fees, and incents completion of requirements within the first two inspections.
- The implementation of a new Deeming Bylaw fee is the result of an increase in the number of requests for Deeming Bylaws.The implementation of a Street Renaming Fee is consistent with previously identified fees for Commemorative Street Naming and Municipal Addressing. The base fee amount is also recommended to be increased for improved cost recovery.
