Members of Regional Council discussed the up-fronting of services that are not yet required and suggested that "Caledon Lands - BRES - POPA 14-04", be removed from the proposed Development Charges (DC) By-law until 2017.

David Szwarc, Chief Administrative Officer and David Bingham, Treasurer and Director, Corporate Finance explained that DC Rates in the proposed Regional Development Charges (DC) By-law and background study are a composite of the various costs of providing services required for land use development for the planning period. Examples of these service categories include Water, Wastewater, Roads, Police and Paramedics.

When DCs are collected, they are deposited into a set of reserves based on these service categories. This process of keeping separate reserves for each service category is mandated by the Provincial DC Act. There is one DC reserve for each service category in the Region. Reserves are not based on the geographical location where the DC revenue is raised.

When a new facility to support growth development is required to be built, the money in the DC reserves are used to fund the new facility, regardless of its geographical location in Peel.
