Development Charges Study

Houses being built

In 2024, the Municipality of Middlesex Centre will be updating its Development Charges (DC) Study, as legislated under the Development Charges Act.

During the study, Watson & Associates Economists Ltd. (project consultants) will be reviewing growth forecasts, longer term capital needs and associated studies, the levels of service offered by Middlesex Centre, Provincial DC policies including recent changes to legislation, and other elements to prepare a updated DC Background Study.

This page will be updated as the project evolves, and will be a main resource for documents and other matters related to the DC Study.
