What is heritage conservation? A brief overview

Heritage conservation doesn't mean freezing a building in time, creating a museum or tying the hands of property owners so they can't do anything with their properties. Instead, it seeks to maintain and thereby increase the value of buildings by keeping their original built form and architectural elements, favouring their restoration rather than replacement and, when restoration is impossible, recreating scale, period and character.

Heritage Conservation provides concrete benefits to property owners, to businesses and to the community as a whole:
