The City of Winnipeg recently issued the following notice:
In accordance with the City of Winnipeg 2015 Operating Budget adopted by Council on March 23, 2015, all Planning, Development and Building fees (regulated by By-law 77/2009) will increase by 2% over and above the inflationary increase previously implemented January 1, 2015. These rates will apply to all relevant permit and other applications with an application date of April 1, 2015 or later.
Likewise, for each of those applications impacted by these increased fees, all permits that are paid entirely by cash, cheque or debit card will receive a 2% reduction. Therefore, those permit applications, for which payment is received via cash, cheque, or debit card, will see no net impact on fees due to this change.
Further revisions to City of Winnipeg building and development permit fees are anticipated in 2015 as a result of the ongoing comprehensive Permit Fees Review Project.
