Bamfield Water System

Bamfield Water Development Cost Charges

The Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District is updating the Bamfield Water Development Cost Charges.

The bylaw (Bylaw No. F1003) that outlines the Development Cost Charges applicable for the Bamfield Water System was passed by the board in 1996. Given the expected growth in Bamfield, and the additional burden this will place on the water system, the ACRD is updating Bylaw No. F1003 and re-examining the current Development Cost Charges.

The ACRD is looking for input from the community.

To better understand the DCC and why this is being suggested, please read the Bamfield Development Cost Charges Frequently Asked Questions (PDF).
