Heritage Designation

Heritage Designation is the legal protection of a property or site through the passing of a bylaw by the local government. Designation provides long term protection for a site, building, or the significant features of a site or building. 

There are thirteen buildings that have been given heritage designation protection in Esquimalt.  In addition, Memorial Park is also protected with this designation.  View the designated locations here.

Any alterations to designated sites and buildings may require a Heritage Alteration Permit.
