Agincourt is bounded by Sheppard Avenue East to the south, the Canadian National Railway tracks to the west, Lockie Avenue to the north, and Midland Avenue to the east.
The Scarborough Community Preservation Panel had for some time been interested in how Heritage Conservation District designation could assist in the preservation and enhancement of the heritage streetscapes of this historic Scarborough village. This interest led the Panel to organize and chair a neighbourhood meeting (May 25, 2005) at which staff and the Panel chair made a presentation about the benefits and implications of a Heritage Conservation District for Agincourt Village. The Ward Councillor was present at this meeting.
The unanimous feeling at this meeting was that Agincourt should be studied to determine its potential for Heritage Conservation District designation and that City Council's approval should be sought to allow the residents and the Panel to initiate the study process under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act.
Consequently, at its September 2005 meeting City Council provided approval for the study process.
