Save Cruden Farm!

This petition had 5,918 supporters

Cruden Farm was given to Elisabeth Murdoch, by her new Husband, Keith in 1928. Dame Elisabeth loved her gardens and nurtured them in to a beautiful haven, not only for herself, but native wildlife. The gardens are world renowned. Dame Elisabeth wanted the property protected from any subdivision, and kept for the community to enjoy. 

The Farm ls in the Rural Conservation Zone. It has a Significant Landscape Overlay, an Environmental Significance Overlay, a Heritage Overlay and is part of the habitat link from the Pines Flora and Fauna park to the Langwarrin Flora and Fauna Park.

It is a huge part of the Langwarrin history and identity, and is enjoyed by people from all over Melbourne not only during their open days and community events, but for people's weddings etc. 

The Trust that Dame Elisabeth left in charge of this property, has lodged a planning amendment application with Frankston council. They want to have the Urban Growth Boundary moved, so that they can sell off 15.8Ha of the paddocks for subdivision of 116 Houses. 

Losing 15.8ha of an important habitat link to such a large development is not worth the trade off of being able to access the gardens more often.

We, the undersigned, hereby demand that the Frankston City Council rejects any application made in regards to the subdivision, development or rezoning of Cruden Farm.
