Every few years, the Chester County Planning Commission examines its fees for reviews of subdivisions and land developments, also known as Act 247 fees. At its January 2018 meeting the Planning Commission advisory board reviewed current fees, which haven’t been raised since early 2015, as well as the fees of other southeastern Pennsylvania counties and Planning Commission costs. The board is recommending a 10 percent increase in the current fees, along with creating a cap on the maximum possible fee, which does not currently exist. This cap is proposed to be $10,000. The Planning Commission advisory board will act on this proposal at its March 14 meeting, with a proposed effective date of June 1, 2018. View proposed review fees.
