1. Zoning Ordinances - Zoning is a legal tool that governs land use in specific geographical zones. Landmark zoning and historic district zoning can be particularly useful in preserving heritage sites. 2. Historic Preservation Ordinances – Laws that mandate the preservation of old and historically significant buildings, districts, and landscapes. 3. Conservation Easements - This is an agreement that protects a property's heritage significance by limiting the type of development or change that can occur. 4. Heritage Designation - This is a status given to a property that recognizes its significance and sets in place measures for its protection. 5. Heritage Conservation Districts - This is a type of zoning that groups together heritage properties that are related in age, architecture, or historical significance to ensure their preservation. 6. Transfer of Development Rights - This is a technique that allows the owner of a heritage property to sell the development rights of the site to another owner or developer. In this way, the site itself can be preserved while development occurs elsewhere. 7. Tax Incentives - This involves the government offering tax reductions or exemptions for the preservation of heritage properties. 8. Conservation Area Consent - This is a legal requirement to gain permission before making any changes to a property within a designated conservation area. 9. Development Review Boards - This is a body of individuals who review proposed developments to ensure they are in line with preservation and conservation goals. 10. Master Plans - These are long-term planning documents that establish the strategic vision for development, including the preservation and enhancement of heritage properties. 11. Building Codes and Regulations - These regulate construction standards to ensure that any changes or additions to existing buildings preserve the heritage value of the property. 12. Environmental Impact Assessment - This is a process to identify and assess the potential environmental impacts of a development project, and is often used to safeguard heritage properties. 13. Public Engagement and Education - These are approaches rather than tools, but still very significant for heritage preservation. This involves raising awareness of the importance and value of heritage properties and encouraging public support for their preservation. 14. Landmark Commissions - They evaluate properties for potential landmark status and make recommendations for historic designations. Each tool serves a unique purpose and they work best when used in combination. It's important to note that the use of these tools should respect the rights of property owners and stakeholders.
