Metro Vancouver Development Cost Charges – UDI and GVHBA letter

August 2, 2017

Metro Vancouver is updating its DCCs for sewerage. Since 2014, they have been working on an update of the By-law, but the public and stakeholder consultation process will not begin until September. The Fraser Valley will be particularity hit with substantial increases (over 200%). In other areas of Metro, the increases range from 78% to 109%. Despite earlier information that the rates would be phased-in, Metro is now planning to have them come fully into effect on April 1, 2018. UDI and the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association wrote a letter to the Metro Board on July 28th regarding industry concerns about the proposed DCC By-law amendments. Metro will be hosting meetings on the DCC By-law this September, and UDI will be providing updates through the Newsletter.
