Development Charges


New services are required for the City of Brandon to grow. These services include off-site improvements (external to a development) to the transportation, water, wastewater and land drainage facilities and networks. One method of funding the off-site improvements is by collecting contributions from new development.

The Development Services Division is completing a development cost charge study and by-law to provide the option of a development charge by-law to Council for consideration.

For information, please contact Chief Planner Ryan Nickel at or by phone at 204-729-2124.
