This dataset is intended for general interest. It provides basic information about some of the Heritage Conservation Areas in BC, such as the Clayburn Heritage Conservation Area in Abbotsford. The data includes, where known: HCA name, local government name, HCA location, year of designation, information source, and whether or not the HCA includes a schedule (list) of properties that are protected heritage property under the Local Government Act.
The dataset includes information from various sources, primarily local government Official Community Plans. It is updated based on notifications to Heritage Branch from local governments, but may not be current. For the most current information on Heritage Conservation Areas in OCPs it is best to contact the local government in which your area of interest is located.

Object Name: WHSE_HUMAN_CULTURAL_ECONOMIC.HIST_HERITAGE_CNSRV_AREAS_SV
Short Name: HSTCNSRV_P
Comments: This dataset contains spatial and attribute data for local government Heritage Conservation Areas (HCAs) established for heritage conservation purposes in British Columbia, as tracked by BC Heritage Branch. Under the Local Government Act, a local government may designate a HCA within its Official Community Plan (OCP). An OCP may include a schedule of properties located within a Heritage Conservation Area that are considered to be protected heritage property. This is a multi-part polygon layer.
