Planning and Development Fees

Planning and Development Applications

To offset the cost of reviewing and issuing decisions on planning, development, and safety code applications, there are fees associated with each. These fees are established through the Consolidated Fees Bylaw 13-21 which can be viewed here.  To confirm the cost of your development application, please reach out to development@strathmore.ca.

Off-Site Levies

The Town updated their Off-Site Levy bylaw in 2021. You can review the bylaw 21-07, including the map and off-site levy rates here

Building and Utility Permits

The Town works with Park Enterprises to review and issue Building, Gas, Plumbing and Electrical Permits. You can review the fee schedules below.

 Building Permit Fee Schedule
Building Permit Fees are determined through a formula, as follows:

$Construction Value ÷ $1000 × $9.00 = $Building Permit Fee
Plus a Safety Codes Levy of 4% of the Permit Fee, Minimum $4.50, Maximum $560.


For example:
A house has a Construction Value of $100,000.
$100,000 ÷ $1000 = $100.00
$100.00 × $9.00 = $900.00
The Building Permit Fee is $900.00, and the Safety Codes Levy is $36.00.
