The appropriate planning fees are required to be submitted with planning applications. These fees help cover the cost of work done by planning, legal, infrastructure and public works in the review of development applications. The Region of Niagara and Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority may also require certain application forms and fees to be submitted as part of your application to the City.

Fees are to be submitted to the municipality with the planning application as part of the City's complete application policies. Failure to submit any of the required fees may result in a delay processing the application.
