RECOMMANDATIONS DU RAPPORT
Que le Sous-comité du patrimoine bâti et le Comité de l’urbanisme prennent connaissance du présent rapport.
On April 27, 2016, City Council approved the recommendations included in report number ACS2016-PAI-PGM-0056 to establish a procedure for the addition and removal of properties from the Heritage Register. The report also established a procedure for demolition requests for buildings listed on the Heritage Register.
Section 4 (1) of the Heritage Register Procedures approved by Council requires Heritage Staff to prepare a report in quarter one of each year that addresses all removals from the Register the previous year. This will include staff initiated removals, requests for removal received from property owners and the removal of all buildings demolished from the previous year.
Section 27 (1.3) of the Ontario Heritage Act states that prior to the removal of a property from the Register, Council must consult its municipal heritage committee. All properties removed from the Register must be approved by Council.
There are three ways in which a property can be removed from the Heritage Register:
1. Property owner request:
• In order to request removal of a property from the Register, a property owner must complete the “Form for Buildings Listed on the Heritage Register” and submit it to Right of Way, Heritage and Urban Design Services
1. Building is demolished
2. Staff initiated the removal of the property
From January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016, one property was removed from the Municipal Heritage Register (see Document 1). The property at 5514 Manotick Main Street was on the City of Ottawa Heritage Register and demolished in October 2016. The Council approved process for demolishing a building on the Municipal Heritage Register is attached in Document 2.
The property owner followed the approved procedure. Notice of Intention to Demolish for the building at 5514 Manotick Main Street was received on July 25, 2016. The Ward Councillor and Chair of Built Heritage Sub-Committee were notified on July 26, 2016. Heritage Staff determined that the building did not merit designation under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act and did not recommend the building for designation. The 60 day timeline expired on September 23, 2016 and the building was demolished in October 2016.
The property at 5514 Manotick Main Street is located in the rural area.
There was no consultation for this report.

1. Once Notice of Intention to Demolish has been submitted along with all required documents, staff will issue an acknowledgement letter providing the date that the notice expires.
2. Staff advise the Ward Councillor and Chairs of Built Heritage Sub-Committee of the receipt of the Notice of Intention to Demolish.
3. Staff review documentation supplied with Notice and determine if the building is worthy of designation under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act. If the property merits designation initiate the designation process and prepare a report for consideration of Built Heritage Sub-Committee, Planning or Agricultural Affairs Committee, and Council.
4. If staff determines the property does not meet the criteria for designation, the 60 day timeline is allowed to expire and the demolition permit is issued. Staff will not bring forward a report on the item unless a designation report is requested by the Ward Councillor or Chair of BHSC.
