Fee Waiver Committee
The Fee Waiver Committee (FWC) reviews written applications to waive all or part of a fee or monetary penalty imposed under the Planning, Development and Building Fees By-law No. 66/2016.
Apply for fee/penalty review
Email or mail your application to waive all or part of a fee or monetary penalty under By-law No. 66/2016 to the Secretary of the FWC as outlined in the form below:
You can only submit one fee/monetary penalty for review per application. If you are requesting more than one fee waiver, submit a separate application for each.
You have to pay all fees and monetary penalties upon receiving an invoice or you will be unable to book inspections.
A permit will not be issued if the permit fee(s) are not paid.
An open permit will not be closed if any fee or monetary penalty remains unpaid.
Fee waiver application process
- The Secretary of the FWC will verify your application is complete and schedule a hearing.
- Hearings happen bi-weekly and most applications are heard within 20 business days of receipt of the application. The Chair of the FWC leads the hearing along with a quorum of subject matter experts from the Planning, Property & Development Department.
- Once the hearing panel decides, applicant(s) are notified of the result in writing within 20 business days.
- If the decision made is to waive the fee or penalty, no further action is required by the applicant. If the decision is made to uphold the fee or monetary penalty, the applicant must pay that fee.
- You can appeal the decision by following the instructions in the decision letter. This next appeal would go to the Standing Policy Committee on Property and Development, which is the final appeal process. You must contact City Clerk's by the date specified on your decision letter.
