New Planning Fees Effective January 1, 2022

News Article

The Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen (RDOS) Board of Directors approved changes to Fees and Charges Bylaw No 2927, 2021 at its October 21, 2021 meeting. The new fees are aligned to reflect the resources required to process an application. 

Anyone considering making a Planning Application is encouraged to consider the fee change timing. Official Community Plan (OCP) and Zoning amendment, Temporary Use Permit (TUP), and boundary adjustment (subdivision) fees will generally increase, while fees for standard subdivision will generally decrease.

  • Official Community Plan (OCP) and/or Zoning Bylaw Amendment
