Township holding public meeting on Cultural Heritage Landscapes

CENTRE WELLINGTON – Residents here are invited to a public information centre and community workshop on Jan. 18  to learn about and participate in the Cultural Heritage Landscapes (CHL) Official Plan amendment.

The project team will provide background information, share policy review research, present a range of potential tools that can be used to protect and manage these areas into the future, and seek input from the public. 

The presentation will be followed by a working session where residents will have the opportunity to share feedback.

Township officials say some key issues to consider include:

– areas and/or features of the CHL that should be protected and managed into the future; 

– areas and/or features within the CHL that are less critical to its significance;

– areas or features in the CHL that could be improved or enhanced;

– the goals and needs within each CHL that are not necessarily linked specifically to heritage; and

– advantages and disadvantages to potential tools that could be used to protect and manage CHLs.

More information about the project, including previous staff and consultant reports, can be found at

The session takes place from 6 to 8pm on Jan. 18 at the Wellington County Museum and Archives.
