Save Brisbane's Sinnamon Farm's Heritage!

The Threat
Sinnamon Farm survives as a very early illustration a rural farming landscape with associated homestead, outbuildings and plantings.  The proposed development of site as a childcare facility includes relocating the homestead within the site, constructing an extremely large and dominant childcare facility, constructing a 2m high acoustic wall around the site and removing all the significant mature plantings.

 National Trust Stance
The National Trust of Australia (Queensland) stance is that the proposed development is fundamentally incompatible with the site and importantly, with the site’s significance.  The Heritage Impact Statement prepared for the development is misleading and does not adequately address the impact of the development of the site’s significance. We recommend that a more appropriate and compatible use of the site is found.  Failing this, we recommend a complete revision of the Heritage Impact Statement and the proposed design in order to protect the significance of Sinnamon Farm and its rural setting.

Sign this petition and help the National Trust of Australia (Queensland) protect, conserve and celebrate Queensland's environmental, built and cultural heritage.
