Register


The Ontario Heritage Act enables municipalities within Ontario to protect properties of cultural heritage value or interest. The Register (Inventory of Heritage Resources) is a publicly accessible register of properties that are of cultural heritage value or interest. The Register includes properties that are listed (Section 27 of the Ontario Heritage Act), individually designated (under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act) and designated as part of a Heritage Conservation District (under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act).

By using CityMap you can interactively explore the inventory of heritage buildings and structures in the City of London.

Listed Properties
The Ontario Heritage Act allows a municipality to include properties of cultural heritage value or interest that have not been designated in its Register. To include a property on the Register, Municipal Council must believe that a property has cultural heritage value or interest. Properties that are listed on the Register do not require Heritage Alteration Permit approval for alterations.

Individually Heritage Designated
Properties that are individually designated under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act met one or more of the O. Reg. 9/06: Criteria for Determining Cultural Heritage Value or Interest. Each property designated under Part IV has an associated By-law that helps to guide future alterations to the designated property by clearly identifying the heritage attributes of the property that should be protected and conserved.

Properties that are designated on the Register may require Heritage Alteration Permit approval for alterations. Please contact a Heritage Planner if you are thinking of altering your property.

Heritage Conservation Districts
The properties within the Heritage Conservation District are designated under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act. A Heritage Conservation District is a geographically defined area within a municipality that is noted for its distinct heritage character. Each Heritage Conservation District in the City of London has a Plan that guides future changes within the area.

Properties that are designated on the Register may require Heritage Alteration Permit approval for alterations. Please contact a Heritage Planner if you are thinking of altering your property.
