Dates of existence
The Vancouver Heritage Advisory Committee was established initially as the Vancouver Heritage Advisory Board in October 1973 by the passage of by-law no. 4729. In September 1974, the by-law was repealed and replaced with by-law no. 4800 with established the Vancouver Heritage Advisory Committee.
The Committee consists of 11 members, all of whom are appointed by Council. Since its establishment, the structure and functions of the Committee have remained relatively stable. The functions of the Committee are to advise Council on the following matters:
- the need for preserving heritage buildings, structures and lands, which collectively represent a cross-section of all periods and styles in the City's historic and cultural evolution;
- the costs and benefits of preservation; the compatibility of preservations with other lawful uses of the buildings, structures or lands; and (in particular),
- recommendations to Council respecting the designation of heritage buildings, structures and lands and the demolition, preservation, alteration or renovation of those buildings, structures and lands.
