The amount of charge will be used in providing facilities and infrastructure in the local authority area. The aim of this research is to identify the issues and challenges in the implementation of development charge imposed by the local authority, and to
recommend the solutions to those issues and challenges. This research uses the qualitative method of analysis to arrive at its findings.

All primary data is gathered from the respondents. Research findings revealed that there are (3) issues in which the
