Six Steps To Designation

Designation Process

There are six key steps to designating an individual property under Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

1: Identifying the property as a candidate for designation.
The interested property owner would write a letter requesting designation to the Collingwood Heritage Committee.

2: Research & evaluating the property.
If the Collingwood Heritage Committee determines that a property is worthy of designation, the committee will arrange for its consultant to prepare the necessary reports. The Heritage Committee will then recommend to Town Council that a Notice of Intention to Designate be prepared.

3: Serving the Notice of Intention to Designate with an opportunity for objection.
The Town of Collingwood will circulate a Notice of Intention to Designate with heritage information about the property. If no objections are received within 30 days, council can proceed to pass a by-law designating the property.

4: Passing and registering the heritage designation by-law
The Town of Collingwood Council would prepare all necessary documentation.

5: Listing the property on the municipal register
The Town of Collingwood Council would prepare all necessary documentation.

6: Listing on the Provincial Register
The Town of Collingwood Council would prepare all necessary documentation.
