Protecting and preserving our heritage is a key priority for the Town of Oakville. This includes cultural landscapes and natural heritage features, as well as buildings.

The town is hosting an open house to gather information from the public regarding eight high priority properties that have the potential to be protected as a Cultural Heritage Landscape (CHL):

  • Biggar Farm (4243 Sixth Line)
  • Bronte Bluffs (35 West River Street)
  • Bronte Harbour (3014 Lakeshore Road West)
  • Bowbeer Farmstead (1086 Burnhamthorpe Road East)
  • Glen Abbey / Raydor Estate (1333 Dorval Drive)
  • Hilton Farm (2031 North Service Road West)
  • McMichael Farm (3367 Dundas Street West)
  • Remnant Farmstead (3451 Tremaine Road)

We want to hear from you!

If you want to learn more and have valuable information to share on these properties join us on March 7! Bring your information with you, or record your comments at the open house.

What’s this project about?

The town adopted the Cultural Heritage Landscapes Strategy in January 2014 to determine how the town will identify and conserve cultural heritage landscapes that may warrant recognition and ultimately some form of protection, preservation and management.

Phase One of the project identified several properties as having the potential to be a CHL. The town is now in Phase Two which is about doing detailed research and assessment on the eight properties, identified by Council on February 26, 2016, to move forward with first.

Your feedback will help form the basis on whether to proceed to Council with any protection measures in Phase Three of the project, such as Official Plan policies or designation under the Ontario Heritage Act.
