Results will be considered along with rightsholders consultations, community stakeholder engagement, best practices, staff expertise, and budget considerations.


The Heritage Program

The City of Fredericton has operated a municipal heritage service for many years. The Heritage and Urban Design Division is a one-person shop within the City's Planning and Development Department that:

  • Administers By-law L-4, the City of Fredericton Heritage Preservation By-law over approximately 350 properties, consistent with New Brunswick's Heritage Conservation Act; and,
  • Supports the function of the Preservation Review Board, a quasi-judicial body tasked with administering By-law L-4 and advising Council on heritage issues in a manner consistent with the By-law and Act.


The Heritage and Urban Design Division also provides other services, including:

  • Support to have properties added to the Local Historic Places Register, a non-regulatory inventory of properties with historic value;
  • Advisory services, including expert advice within the corporation and to the owners of heritage building stock; and,
  • Although beyond the scope of this exercise, the Division also provides expertise in urban design and landscape architecture.
