Aurora Register of Properties of Cultural Heritage Value or Interest
The Town of Aurora maintains a Register of approximately 650 buildings which it considers as having architectural and/or historical significance.
The Municipal Register is the official list of properties that have been identified as being culturally or historically important to the community. The Register helps the Town of Aurora to keep track of its cultural heritage resources and plan for their conservation.
The Register includes key information on all the buildings, structures, landscapes and districts that have been designated under the Ontario Heritage Act
either as individual properties (Part IV designation) or as a property within a heritage conservation district (Part V designation). Please note that non-heritage properties located within a heritage conservation district are considered designated and are included in this inventory.
The Register also includes Listed "non-designated" properties that have cultural heritage value or interest. The listing of non-designated properties provides interim protection for sites undergoing change by requiring owners to provide the Town with at least 60 days notice of their intention to demolish or remove a building or structure on the property. This notice period allows the Town to make a well informed decision about whether long term protection of the property should be sought through the formal designation process.
Inclusion on the Municipal Register as a Listed "non-designated property" does not mean your property is being designated.
Please note that this inventory is a work in progress. New information is being added on a regular basis. Every time you visit the website you may find new information. This information is provided for general information only. If you need more information, please contact us.
