​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Parkland Dedication By-law is the principle means by which the City of Brampton acquires parkland and other forms of open space. The by-law sets out parkland dedication requirements for new development and redevelopments. Requirements are satisfied through:

  • The conveyance of land for parks purposes, and/or
  • The payment of cash in lieu of land (CIL)​

A cross-departmental team has been working with members of the building and development industry (as represented by BILD) in an effort to streamline the process associated with the calculation and collection of CIL as a condition of development on plans of subdivision (i.e. where parkland dedication requirements are deferred and collected in the form of CIL @ the building permit stage). For more information on this new approach, please refer to Methodology for CIL Collections on Plans of Subdivision @ Building Permit Stage.(Posted on November 1, 2018)
