Listed Heritage Registry
See below for a full list of the properties that Trent Hills believe are of heritage and cultural value in your community. Listed properties do not have the same protections as properties designated by by-laws, but owners must still notify Council and Staff if they wish to make alterations to their property, especially any heritage properties. Next time you are driving around look out for one of these properties in your neighbourhood!
Due to recent changes to the Ontario Heritage Act, this list is now publically accessible for anyone to peruse through. If you are the owner of one of these properties and want to move ahead with designation, please contact the Planning Department/Heritage Committee through via email at email@example.com
If you feel your property has been added to the list in error, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Changes to the Ontario Heritage Act mean that any property listed before January 1st, 2023 will be automatically removed from the list on January 1st, 2025. As such, any property owners who feel their property is incorrectly listed as heritage can remove their property from the listed register early.
