A Heritage Conservation District Plan and Design Guidelines will provide the detailed implementation information that will be used to guide future conservation and development activities within the historic community of Port Stanley.

In 2013, MHBC Planning, the Municipality's planning consultants, presented Council with a Heritage Conservation District (HCD) Study and Implementation Plan for the community of Port Stanley.

Although Council, at that time, did not pursue an HCD designation, the information and recommendations provided an excellent resource for Council and staff to refer to when reviewing and assessing development applications.

Council adopted portions of the report that could serve as design guidelines for voluntary implementation. These sections include:

  • 4.4 - Alterations to Heritage Properties
  • 4.5 - Alterations to Non-Heritage Properties
  • 4.6 - Signage on Commercial Structures
  • 4.7 - New building Construction
  • 4.10 - Landscape Conservation and Design Guidelines for the Private Realm; and
  • 4.11 - Landscape Conservation and Design Guidelines for the Public Realm

The Study's recommendations on signage on commercial structures was later incorporated into Central Elgin's sign by-law.

    was the HCD study (Section 4.7, New Building Construction) used, and to what effect, during the review and assessment of the development application by Prespa to erect multi-storey residential buildings on William Street and Edith Cavell Blvd.

    Previous councils decided not to create a heritage conservation district. Property owners could opt to use guidelines and recommendations from the study with the development of their properties, however there is no requirement for property owners to do so.
