Centre Wellington Cultural Heritage Landscape Study
In June 2021, Council endorsed the “Cultural Heritage Landscape Study and Inventory for the Township of Centre Wellington”. The goal of the project was to identify, evaluate, inventory, and map significant cultural heritage landscapes (CHLs) in Centre Wellington. The project identified 18 significant CHLs. The purpose of this next phase of the project is to formally recognize these 18 CHLs in the Township’s Official Plan through mapping and to develop enabling policies that can support management and conservation of these important areas and their features.
The project team includes Township staff and the project consultants at ASI Heritage and Fotenn. At the meeting, the project team will provide background information, share policy review research, present a range of potential tools that can be used to protect and manage these areas into the future and seek input from the public. The presentation will be followed by a working session where you will have the opportunity to share your feedback.
Some key questions to be answered and conversations that will occur at the workshop include:
- What areas and/or features of the CHL should be protected and managed into the future? Which areas and/or features with the CHL are less critical to its significance?
- Are there areas or features in the CHL that could be improved or enhanced?
- What are the goals and needs within each CHL that are not necessarily linked specifically to heritage?
- Advantages and disadvantages of potential tools that could be used to protect and manage CHLs
We look forward to working with you on this important project. More information about the project, including previous staff and consultant reports, can be found at: www.connectcw.ca/CHL
Please note: Registration is not required for this session. A public meeting under the Planning Act will be held at a future date.
