Save St John’s 110 yr old Church and Hall in Donvale

This petition had 39 supporters

With the current active destruction of Manningham’s character through overdevelopment, the people wish to retain some of our historical foundations so that future generations can learn of and from the past - so much evidence of Manningham’s history is already gone.

The site of the 110 year old church and hall at 283 Springvale Rd was sold to Manningham Council in the 1970’s for the use of and care by the Council. It reflects poorly on councils past that in 2006, a property heritage report was ignored and the property was sold in 2008.

In 2016, the Council voted to save the buildings, but the newly formed Council reversed this decision in March 2017. This needs rectifying and it’s not too late.

Action:  We the undersigned concerned citizens, urge our leaders to act now to save the historic church and hall at 283 Springvale Rd Donvale by:-

  1. Having an historic overlay applied to the buildings
  2. Promptly preserving it for community use by either
  3. Purchasing the property and preserving the buildings in situ
  4. Moving the buildings to the Doncaster Templestowe Historical Society site known as Schramm's Cottage Museum Complex
