Heritage

Heritage Committee

DEFINITIONS:

Cultural Heritage: the aesthetic, historical, scientific, social, cultural, emotional and spiritual values embodied within built-forms, spaces & landscapes that we construct, share or inhabit; and in the archaeological record of what we’ve left behind.

Conservation: the care and maintenance of existing heritage property elements to ensure they remain sound & intact, and also retain an original character or appearance 

Restoration: removing undesirable additions and/or replicating lost or damaged building elements in a manner that maintains or enhances the earlier character of a building

Renovation: removing original or period elements, materials, finishes and details in order to “modernize”

PRESERVATION TIPS:

If possible, repair instead of replace. 

Where replacement is necessary, do so sparingly & with appropriate material

Retain historic character and value of building with original baseboards, plaster ceiling medallions & cornices, door & window mouldings, staircases, period light fixtures, mantelpieces, stained glass windows, etc.

Over-zealous cleaning with harsh products or methods can destroy the authentic character and/or patina.
