Over the past three years, we have seen a consistent rise in building permit values in Kent County, even through a pandemic and uncertainty. 2019 ended with permit values of $25.6 million and 349 permits issued. 2020, with all its challenges, ended with values of $38.5 million and 527 permits issued. 2021 finished with permit values of $50 million and 622 permits.
2022 was no disappointment, hitting a new record in Kent County for permit values of $ 68,679,100.00 with only 587 issued permits. This means a staggering 167% increase from 2019 and a 37% increase from 2021. The Kent Regional Service Commission is pleased with 2022 and eager to see what 2023 will bring.
The Kent Regional Service Commission has been offering its services to the population since 2013. The organization has two mandatory mandates, namely land use planning and solid waste management, as well as several responsibilities in terms of regional collaboration. Visit www.krsc.ca
