It is important to identify areas with proven or potential heritage
significance early on in the subdivision process. This will allow for
the least restrictive on-site development and the most cost-effective
management of archaeological sites. If there are known values on site, or an indication of high archaeological values present, a report from a certified archaeologist may be required. If there are no known values but an item or feature of archaeological interest becomes evident, it is vital to stop all work and hire an archeological professional to assess the site further. All applicants must comply with the
Heritage Conservation Act.
