Region of Peel’s proposed development charges by-law approved

Brampton, ON (December 10, 2020) – Today, Regional Council approved the 2020 Development Charge (DC) By-law and Background Study.

The new DC By-law comes into effect on January 22, 2021 and replaces the current DC By-law prior to its expiry on January 24, 2021.
