In order to understand its character, the HCD study will identify and evaluate heritage resources, including buildings, landscapes, and streetscapes along Princes Street (from Lambton Street south to 669 Princes Street), Durham Market North and South, and Queen Street (from Lambton to Durham Market South).Your comments will help us understand what is important to people in the Study Area.

  • Your input is an important part of the Heritage Conservation District (HCD) Plan process. As a community, you can decide how the heritage resources in the HCD will be conserved, and how the area will change and evolve over time. Your input at this stage of the HCD Plan will help to create the policies and guidelines that all property owners in the HCD and the municipality will abide by.

    The purpose of this survey is to help us understand what you want to prioritize. Do you want the HCD policies to focus more broadly on retaining the overall streetscape character and visual quality of the historic core? Or is it more important to you that the HCD provides detailed guidance on how to retain, repair, and restore historical architectural details? Your answers to the questions below will help guide us. The questions below can’t capture every detail of an HCD, but they will help us get started. You will have an opportunity to comment on the draft policies and guidelines when they are completed so don’t worry – we will check back with you!

    Keep the following definitions in mind when you answer the questions:

    High Priority: Conservation of this element should be a high priority in the HCD. Original elements should be retained wherever possible, and replacements should be as similar to the original as possible in type, materials, and appearance. 

    Medium Priority: Conservation of this attribute could be more flexible than prescribed; this attribute can withstand more changes without effecting the overall character of the HCD.

    Low Priority: There should be more guidelines than policy for this element. Changes to this attribute would not detract from the overall quality of the HCD or would be more temporary/reversible than other attributes.
