Historic Neighbourhood Context Statements

Context Statements are created to determine the broad patterns of historic development in a community.

A historic Context Statement is a document used in community planning. They identify historic property types or styles, which represent the history of the neighbourhood. As a planning document, it is meant to be a dynamic work, evolving as a community’s needs and desires change.
