Residential developers in the Township of Langley will now need to pay more if they want to increase density beyond what is laid out in the municipality’s Official Community Plan. During a meeting on Oct. 18, council approved new guidelines for the Community Amenity Contribution—a fee developers have to pay in order to help support things like affordable housing, greenways, and recreation centres.
Although the cost is the same as it had been previously (between $6,808 for single-family lots and $3,507 per unit for high density apartments), developers will now need to pay three times as much if their project requires an amendment to the OCP. The contribution does not apply to industrial or commercial developments, although council can request those funds on a case-by-case basis.
