Friends of Allen Park Bushland Group 'Save the Cottage' Petition
The City of Nedlands Council is still deliberating whether to give proposed funds to restore a gorgeous heritage cottage in the Allen Park Bushland area. The cottage currently houses a volunteer group, Friends of Allen Park Bushland Group, which has spent over 20 years restoring and caring for the surrounding bushland on Melon Hill. The project to restore the cottage would also allow other local volunteer groups to use and enjoy the cottage and would preserve the heritage of a very special area which is already home to a number of heritage buildings that are also being preserved and cared for. This petition is to show the council how supportive the community is of using allocated funds to restore the only original cottage in the “Heritage Precinct”, rather than the alternative plan that would destroy the cottage and replace it with a cheaper purpose built shed - a plan that will betray the ethos of the unique heritage area that promotes conservation and restoration.
