🏠 Request a review of Kingston’s heritage buildings and identify properties which deserve further protections, to mitigate the risk of losing more iconic local landmarks

🏠 Monitor plans for Kingston’s Major Activity Centres including Cheltenham and Mentone in Como Ward and continue to engage with the community for their feedback
