About the study

The City of Guelph is completing this study to determine the suitability of a heritage conservation district in the historic core of the Ward neighbourhood (the Ward West). A heritage district would protect significant heritage buildings and landscapes, guide new development, and ensure that the Ward’s unique character and identity can be enjoyed by future generations!

The area being assessed as part of the study is outlined in red on the map below:
