A heritage permit allows owners of a designated heritage property to make alterations.
According to the Ontario Heritage Act, owners of a designated property must receive the consent of their local Council for any alterations that affect the heritage attributes of their designated property. This process fully assesses the impact of the changes on the heritage attributes of the property and ensures the long-term conservation of the property.
The Heritage Permit application must be accompanied by plans and/or other information that details the extent of the proposed works and the impact on the heritage attributes of the property.
When reviewing Heritage Permit applications, Council will take into account the policies in the Town of Milton's Official Plan and the information included in Designation By-law, as well as other relevant guidelines such as the Federal Government's "Standards and Guidelines for the Conservation of Historic Places in Canada."
