Vancouver Heritage Action Plan
In June, the City of Vancouver put in place interim policies that aim to reduce demolition of heritage and character homes while a full review of the City’s Heritage Conservation Program is undertaken.
Some homeowners have expressed concern about what this means for their property. Vancouver Heritage Foundation has created a new page on their website that explains the interim measures currently in place, and addresses the assertion that renovating a home is more costly than building new.
