The exploration of, and consultation for, the potential Heritage Conservation Area in the Queen's Park neighbourhood was undertaken during a temporary, one year, Heritage Control Period. Houses built before 1967 in the Queen’s Park neighbourhood were subject to the Control Period from June 2016 to June 2017. The purpose of the Control Period was to minimize the loss of houses and street character while the City explored the option of a Queen’s Park Heritage Conservation Area.

While the Control Period was in place, the City was authorized to reject applications for demolition, exterior renovations, or new builds. Heritage Alteration Permit applications were reviewed by City staff, a Technical Review Panel, and by the Community Heritage Commission (CHC). Their recommendations were used by Council, or the Director of Development Services, in their consideration of the application.
