Heritage Permit Application Form

The Municipality of Bluewater requires an application form and detailed documentation to ensure that the cultural heritage value and interest of properties designated by the Ontario Heritage Act are protected and conserved in accordance with the merits and technical details of the proposed alterations.

The application is reviewed by the Heritage Advisory Committee which provides a recommendation to Council. Council makes the final decision. Complete applications must be submitted at least 2 (two) weeks prior to a scheduled committee meeting.

Find information. Before you begin, ensure that you have the information you need to fill out the application form. You will need to know:

• the property description (Plan Number and Lot Number from the property tax bill)

• the property owner's contact information

• the name of the document containing the historical attributes of the property. This may be the Bayfield Heritage Conservation District Plan, Heritage Register or information you found in your family history or an archive.

Collect application material. You are required to submit documents that support your application. They will help to fully describe the project and its potential impact on historical attributes on the property or Bayfield Heritage Conservation District. An application is incomplete until all information is submitted and reviewed. You will need:

  • Plans and elevation drawings
  • Survey/site plan/location plan
  • Historical and current photographs
  • Product samples
  • Paint chips (Benjamin Moore Historical Collection colors are recommended)
  • If required, owner’s letter of authorization
  • If required, technical cultural heritage studies

Email application material. This form allows one upload. The upload is the Owner's Authorization Letter, if applicable. Please email all of the other application documents. The email subject line must reference the heritage application and street address. Please allow up to 2 (two) business days for staff to confirm receipt. An application is incomplete until all information is submitted and reviewed.
