Owen Sound council has postponed a decision on the fate of a heritage building in the city.

A Toronto-area developer has applied for a permit to tear down Branningham Grove, built in 1881.

City Council’s Heritage Advisory Committee has recommended it be designated a ‘heritage building’ and save it from demolition.

Before anything further happens, council wants a meeting with the developer.

A decision to designate it could be taken to the Ontario Municipal Board.
