Town of Huntsville Development Charges

Development charges are levies against new development imposed to assist in financing the infrastructure required to meet the increased need for services resulting from growth and development. Development charges help protect existing taxpayers by having growth pay for growth.


The Town of Huntsville's Council passed Development Charges By-law No. 2015-99 on December 21, 2015 (effective March 23, 2016) under section 2 of the Development Charges Act, 1997. This by-law establishes Municipal-wide development charges.

Council decided that, for an interim period and until Council amends By-law No. 2015-99, 40% of the calculated charges presented in Schedule B of the By-law be imposed. This results in the development charge rates and are summarized here:
