Brockville's Municipal Register of Cultural Heritage Properties includes properties that are Listed along with those that are Designated. Being Listed on the Heritage Register is not the same as having a property "Designated" under the Ontario Heritage Act. Listing a property is primarily an administrative process while designating a property is a legal process. Unlike Designation, listing properties does not add any restrictions to renovations made to the interior OR exterior of the building. It does provide some protection from demolition: " the owner shall not demolish or remove a building unless the owner gives council or the municipality 60 days notice in writing." For unlisted properties, the City must respond to an application for a demolition permit within 10 days.
Having a property listed on the Heritage Register is generally, and rightly so, a point of pride for property owners. Please select the link to view Brockville's Listed Properties on the Register.
