Research shows that values are more likely to increase in a conservation area because it preserves the special character that defines a unique neighbourhood. THE QPRA ENCOURAGES THE NEIGHBOURHOOD RESIDENTS TO LOOK AT THE RESEARCH BEHIND THE POSITIVE EFFECTS OF CONSERVATION AND REAL ESTATE VALUES. In your search engine just enter Heritage Conservation Areas and Real Estate Values.
The Queen’s Park neighbourhood is exploring becoming New Westminster’s first Heritage Conservation Area. This could include a new requirement for Council approval for certain types of changes to existing buildings and landscaping, as well as mandatory design guidelines for new development. The basic principles for these policies were established through the Neighbourhood Heritage Study (2013-2015) and the recent public open houses.
Please take the time to fill out the City’s online survey.
The survey runs from November 30th-December 16/2016
Refer to the following website to learn more about the project, open houses and the means of providing feedback.
