Heritage Conservation Districts

Heritage Conservation Districts are designated under the Provincial Heritage Property Act as a means of identifying groups of buildings and their surroundings for specific conservation measures. Truro's collection of architectural styles is a physical testament to the history of Truro, its people, and the events which formed the basis of our present day community. The heritage buildings, both stately and modest, which line the Towns streets, contribute immeasurably to the character of Truro's streetscapes. The Town recognizes that if this valuable resource is not protected through a heritage conservation strategy, it may be lost to future development.
