Chester County Health Department’s New Fee Schedule

February 2010Newsletters In the Zone

Effective January 1, 2010, the Chester County Health Department (CCHD) will have a new fee schedule for permitting, subdivision, contractor licensing and administrative fees. Of particular interest are the changes made to the sewage-related fees.

No longer will the cost of subdivision review and lot testing be a lump sum fee. The CCHD has opted to create an itemized fee schedule billing individually for each activity. This will likely result in costs considerably higher than under the existing fee schedule.

For example, separate unique charges will be made for plan review, test pit evaluations, perc tests and construction inspections.
