Development Cost Charges (DCCs)

The City of Surrey has had Development Cost Charges since 1978. These Development Cost Charges (DCCs) are updated every few years to reflect current costs and growth trends.

DCCs are used to fund the costs to provide road, drainage, water and sewer services for the projected growth in population that's expected to occur within the next 10 years, as outlined in the 10-Year Servicing Plan.

Development Cost Charge Bylaw

The City's current DCC By-law No. 19107 came into effect upon adoption on May 16, 2017. The City Wide DCC rates for zones and land uses and the area specific rates for the Highway 99 Corridor and Campbell Heights are provided in Schedule 'B' of the Bylaw. Additional area specific DCC rates for West Clayton and the City Centre are provided in Schedule ‘C’ and ‘D’ of the bylaw, respectively. Area specific DCC rates for Anniedale-Tynehead is provided in Schedule ‘E’.

Development Cost Charge Report

As part of the DCC process, and as required by Section 937.01 of the Local Government Act, the City of Surrey is required to complete a DCC Report for each year. The City’s 2013 Development Cost Charge Report is now complete, and summarizes the following:
