The City of Calgary is conducting a comprehensive review of its Planning and Development Department fees, and has retained KPMG to carry out the work. This review will support the City to answer the following questions:

•        Are the current Planning and Development fees competitive with local municipal competitors and comparable Canadian municipalities?

•        Does the current fees support the City of Calgary’s city building goals?

The fee schedules that pertain to this project include the:

•        Building and Trade Permit Fee Schedule

•        Land-use Amendment Fee Schedule

•        Planning Applications Fee Schedule

•        Subdivision Fee Schedule

The City has launched an online survey to gather your feedback on the fee schedules and you can access the survey here:

 The survey should take about 10-15 minutes to complete and will remain open until March 18th, 2022. Responses are confidential and anonymous.
