Save tree linked to Phar Lap from developers!

Please help!

St Albans Park Residents have huge concerns over a proposed development where a significant old tree with links to Phar Lap will be destroyed!

Our group needs donations to appoint planning and legal specialists to help us fight this cause and to create a planning overlay around the tree. Any money we receive will go to this cause. Any left over funds will be donated to an equine or environmental charity. Every dollar will help   

All receipts will be kept and available for review on request. We are just mums and dads trying to preserve our neighbourhood's history from developers who seek to destroy it.

Phar Lap's stablemates from his 1930 secret trip to the area before winning the 1930 Melbourne Cup are buried here, along with descendants of "Carbine" (winner of the 1890 Melbourne Cup) and other famous racehorses bred at the famous St Albans Park Stud. These famous horses are buried under this beautiful tree in the developer's path. Unfortunately, this is the only tree left of the handful which had the famous racehorse remains interred beneath.
The land has an existing Covenant protecting it from subdivision, which only the Council can overturn. The heritage and history of the significant tree are priceless and should be protected. It shouldn't be allowed to be destroyed so a developer can subdivide his investment property.

So many species of local wildlife also call this beautiful tree home.
High ranking meetings are occurring, but we need your help!
Please also object to Council directly via the links below to cease this development and help save St Albans Park's heritage and history. Please don't let this beautiful old tree with significant burials be lost.
