Dear Municipal Heritage Committee Chairperson,
I’m pleased to share the Ontario Heritage Trust’s announcement of the recent addition of two new pages on the Trust’s website. A page focusing on Heritage Conservation Districts has been launched. It provides detailed information on all current and proposed districts, spotlights best practices across Ontario and provides resources and useful links that will point users to sample terms of reference documents for HCD studies, examples of amended district plans and more.
The Trust’s website now also includes an information page devoted to the Ontario Heritage Act (OHA) Register. The new page outlines the purpose of the Register, the type of documents that should be submitted and other key information. The page also includes an online query form to make enquiries about the heritage status of properties designated under section 29 or 41 of the Ontario Heritage Act.
Feel free to take a look. The Trust certainly welcome your feedback. Links to the new web pages are: Heritage Conservation Districts: www.heritagetrust.on.ca/hcd / www.heritagetrust.on.ca/dcp and Ontario Heritage Act Register: www.heritagetrust.on.ca/register / www.heritagetrust.on.ca/registre
