Cultural Heritage

Study Method

The purpose of the environmental studies are to:  

  • Establish existing (baseline) conditions;  
  • Identify and characterize existing features;  
  • Complete impact assessments; and  
  • Develop measures to avoid, minimize or mitigate potential negative effects.  

Methods undertaken to complete these studies include the following: 

  • Historical research.  
  • Review heritage registers and inventories.  
  • Identify cultural heritage resources.  
  • Identify potential adverse impacts and appropriate mitigation measures.  

Existing Environmental Conditions
