in 2012, FoNTRA Advocacy Positions 2012-2019, Responsible Development


• FoNTRA recommends that development application fees be at a level that provide for full-cost recovery and that a minimum standard, such as the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standard, be implemented for all new development in Toronto. The City of Toronto needs to actively support these changes that again require action by the Province to amend the Development Charges Act so that there is a distinction between developments designed to maximize energy efficiency and environmental sustainability and those that do not.

Until changes to the Planning Act as outlined are implemented, development application fees for development proposals that require Official Plan and/or Zoning By-law amendments should be increased accordingly.
