Notice Of Passing Of By-Law To Designate A Portion Of Melville Street In Dundas As A Heritage Conservation District Study Area
TAKE NOTICE that, on September 28, 2022, the Council of the City of Hamilton passed By-law Number 22-258 to designate a portion of Melville Street in Dundas, from Sydenham Street to Wellington Street North, as a Heritage Conservation District Study Area under Section 40.1 of the Ontario Heritage Act.
Explanation of Purpose and Effect of By-law
The By-law prohibits alterations to, and the erection, demolition and removal of buildings or structures on, properties in the identified study area for a period of one year. The purpose of the limitations on changes to properties in the study area is to allow time for the City to conduct a review of the cultural heritage value of the area and determine if it should be considered for heritage district designation under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act, and to protect the potential heritage value of the area in the interim. The By-law does include exemptions and outlines the types of works that would be permitted while the By-law is in effect.
Any person who objects to the By-law may, within thirty days after date of publication of the Notice of Passing of the By-law in the Hamilton Spectator, appeal to the Ontario Land Tribunal by giving the clerk of the municipality a notice of appeal setting out the objection to the By-law and the reasons in support of the objection, accompanied by the fee charged by the Tribunal, in accordance with Section 40.1(4) of the Ontario Heritage Act.
Dated this the 19th day of October, 2022.
