This webinar helps participants develop the necessary documentation for identified sites on a Community Heritage Register. As an essential component of historic place record documentation, the SOS functions as a key planning tool to inform decision-making in the heritage conservation process. It provides guidance to property owners, architects, developers and others who are making an intervention to an historic place. Gain an understanding of what an SOS is, how it can be used and what elements to include in a well-written document. This webinar is especially useful for those who are applying to the Heritage Legacy Fund, as an SOS for the chosen site is a compulsory element to the Heritage Conservation Program application.
