Heritage Permits

Property owners in the downtown Port Perry Heritage Conservation District (HCD) must apply for a Heritage Permit to make any changes to the exterior of their buildings. Heritage Permits ensure buildings in the HCD maintain their historical and cultural significance. 

Apply for a Heritage Permit

You are encouraged to arrange a pre-consultation meeting with the Building Department to confirm that your plans require a Heritage permit and to also determine if you require any additional permits, such as a Building Permit.

As of June 8, 2022 for new applications, the Township of Scugog is pleased to offer residents, contractors, and the business community Cloudpermit – an online system to apply for and track your Heritage applications and permits. Current active permits and new e-permits will be prioritized and reviewed based on the order of submission. Please do not start a new application if you have one in progress as they are following the current priority process. Please be patient while we make these improvements to serve you better. 

Step 1: Start creating a new application by clicking the button 'Create your first application'. 

Step 2: Invite other necessary parties, such as property owner or contractor. 

Step 3: Complete your application, upload all required documents. 

Step 4: Verify, Sign and Submit for review. 

Step 5: Revise the application based on the feedback from the Township of Scugog. 

Step 6: Watch for follow up emails to make sure the process keeps going.
