The Heritage Committee gathers heritage concerns from the Glebe community and draws heritage issues to the attention of the GCA. The Heritage Committee also represents the GCA on heritage issues with other organizations.
In October 2009 the Heritage Committee began meeting the first Wednesday of the month at the Glebe Community Centre. Through monthly meetings the Committee hopes to identify and mitigate threats to heritage as well as engage the community in these issues.
The committee would like to look at how different planning tools may mitigate threats to heritage. We also hope to further engage the community through increased communication.

Heritage Committee Mandate:
The Glebe Community Association Heritage Committee is committed to researching, investigating and taking appropriate action to preserve and celebrate the Glebeâ€™s architectural and social history through its buildings and streetscapes and landscapes. This goal/mandate is met in two ways:
- Utilizing and investigating the available tools to assist in the conservation of heritage assets. This includes formal designation requests and providing assistance with the research required for them, as well as provided input on applications made in relation to existing designated heritage buildings and districts, and
- Outreach, consultation and education to the community and city as a whole on the architectural and social history of the Glebe in general and on its heritage buildings. This is achieved though workshops, walking tours, websites and articles in local media such as the Glebe Report, as well as the successful designation of buildings and districts.
