The purpose of this procedure is to outline the process for the exercise of delegated authority for the granting of permits for alterations to designated heritage properties.
This procedure applies to the exercise of delegated authority to grant permits for the alteration of designated heritage properties by the Director of Planning Services (the “Director”), or his or her designate, in accordance with the By-law delegating the power to consent/grant heritage permits for the alteration of designated heritage properties (the “By-law”).
Any heritage permit application that is not in the category of works outlined in the By-law shall be processed in accordance with the provisions of the Ontario Heritage Act, which requires the application to be processed by Heritage Oakville and Council.
If the work proposed is in the category of works outlined in the By-law, upon review of the application the Director may:
The Director shall provide a report summarizing the permits granted under section 4(a) of this procedure at a future Heritage Oakville meeting, at a minimum of three times per year, and shall also provide an annual report to Council.
The Director shall prescribe all forms necessary to implement this procedure, and may amend such forms from time to time as the Director deems necessary.
Regardless of any authority delegated to the Director under the By-law, Council may, after notifying the Director, exercise any authority that is delegated to the Director.
The Director is authorized to undertake all acts necessary to carry out the authority vested in the Director pursuant to the By-law, including ensuring compliance with this procedure.
