Step 3: What do you need to know? (continued)
Where is the boundary?
Defining the boundary of a place or an area of interest helps to establish:
- who to involve
- what areas to protect
- which properties are involved
- what planning or other jurisdictions need to be considered.
A boundary of a place or study area should encompass the features that are of heritage significance. The area may include a buffer zone, or an area much larger than the heritage place.
The exact boundary of an area of interest cannot always be determined at the beginning of a study. It may evolve over the process. Even though some heritage places do not have clear boundaries, for practical purposes you should consider where one should be drawn.
