West Woodfield Heritage Conservation District
London's Heritage Buildings And Structures
The term "Woodfield" refers to a geographic area which has been
identified as a downtown neighbourhood by area residents and recognized
as such by the Planning Department. Historically, the Woodfield
neighbourhood developed as a result of the city's expansion north and
eastward. Within Woodfield, the last Woodfield Heritage
Conservation District was established in 193 and, at present, an
investigation is underway to consider an heritage conservation district
for the West Woodfield area.
The West Woodfield Heritage Conservation District has an irregular
shape and is located directly west of the existing East
Woodfield Heritage Conservation District. The specific study area is bounded by Richmond Street to the west, Dufferin and Queens
Avenue to the south, Maitland Street, and Peter Street to the east and
Central and Pall Mall Streets to the south. These initial
boundaries include approximately 500 properties, primarily residential,
but also commercial, retail and office as well as churches and other
institutional uses and a large urban park.

West Woodfield Heritage Conservation District Study
The West Woodfield Heritage Conservation District Study is currently being undertaken on behalf of the City of London by Stantec Consulting in association
with Nexus Architects, Ecoplans Limited and Mike Baker to review an area close to the Downtown known as the West Woodfield Area with a well
established architectural history.
The Study is a two-phase process, whereby Phase 1 focuses on background research and
examination of the history and architecture to determine if the area warrants designation as a Heritage Conservation District based on the City’s Official Plan criteria.
Phase 2 of the study is the preparation of a Heritage Conservation District Plan for the area identified in Phase 1. The Plan will provide policy direction and strategies to
conserve and enhance the character of the Heritage Conservation District.
