What Are the Glebe Society's Heritage Policies?
Our polices are to:
- oppose developments detrimental to our heritage conservation values,
- preserve and enhance the natural and architectural character of Glebe by encouraging the protection of heritage in town planning, architectural and conservation practices,
- promote an interest in heritage conservation and appropriate maintenance practices, and
- stimulate interest in the historical character of Glebe by encouraging research into the history of the area.
How Does the Glebe Society carry out its Heritage Policies?By being informed of state and local legislation on heritage conservation.
- Liaising with developers and local government regarding proposed developments which could impact on Glebe's unique character, preparing written objections, attending Land and Environment Court proceedings as witnesses.
- Arranging seminars and visits to heritage buildings and places in Glebe.
- Liaising with State heritage listed item owners and occupiers to promote and preserve the unique character of those places.
- Informing Glebe residents of items of heritage interest and importance through The Glebe Society Bulletin and website.
