Heritage Incentives
Banff AveHeritage incentives are used to encourage the retention and restoration of heritage resources. There are two types of incentives available to resource owners: Conservation Incentives and Financial Incentives.

Conservation Incentives

Property owners who voluntarily register their property on the Registry of Recognized Heritage Resources are eligible for these incentives that may include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Variances to the Land Use Bylaw
  • Relaxation of the Town of Banff Design Guidelines
  • Land Use Bylaw Amendments
  • Transferable/assumable Bed and Breakfast Development Permits for Bed and Breakfast operations on properties designated as Municipal Historic Resources
  • Design consultation/technical assistance for the restoration or development of properties on the Registry of Recognized Heritage Resources

Financial Incentives
