District Designation By-law
On July 27, 2006, Toronto City Council adopted By-law No. 634-2006, which designated the area shown on the map attached to this note as the Union Station Heritage Conservation District (the District) under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act (the Act). The By-law also adopts the Heritage Conservation District Plan and Guidelines, dated April, 2006.
Alterations to Property
The purpose of By-law 634-2006 is to maintain the heritage character of the Union Station District. This is accomplished by requiring certain alterations to buildings within the District to conform to Guidelines which are included in the District Plan. Typically, these alterations only relate to portions of the property that are visible from the street (ie the fašade). For example, no heritage permit is required for exterior work that is not visible from the street, interior work, landscaping, painting, and repairs using the same materials. If the proposal conforms to the Guidelines it can be approved by staff. Applications that do not conform to the Guidelines will be referred to City Council for consideration.
Demolition and Infill Development
Under By-law 634-2006, owners of property are required to apply for a heritage permit before demolishing any building in the District. Demolition applications are referred to City Council for consideration. If City Council refuses the permit, the applicant may appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board. New (infill) construction must contribute to the heritage character of the District, as per the District Guidelines.
A copy of the District Plan, which includes the Guidelines, is available at www.toronto.ca/heritage-preservation/heritage_districts.htm.
