New building is down this month in Collingwood over the same time last year, but that’s in part due to two large projects on the books for July 2017.

This year there were 61 permits issued in July for a total construction value of $1,657,415 and building permit fees of $18,440. There were two new dwelling units created and $65,661 in development charges collected.

Those numbers are down from July 2017, when there were 84 permits issued and 84 new dwelling units created for a total construction value of $24,798,400. However, last year in July the town issued permits for a 55-unit apartment building to Simcoe County Housing Corp. and for 17 detached dwellings to Grandview Homes. The two projects contributed more than $19 million to the construction value that month.

In July 2018, the town issued four heritage permits, one demolition permit, one septic system permit, and 10 backflow permits. The town collected $27,129 in county development charges and $3,703 for the education levy. The town also received $5,200 cash-in-lieu of parkland.
