Protect The Sisters of Mercy Site

The Sisters of Mercy have recently put up their beautiful bushland site up for sale. The Bardon site could either be bought by developers or preserved for the community to enjoy for generations to come.

On paper, this beautiful site is protected by Council rules against tree-clearing, thanks to its high ecological value. Unfortunately, the real estate agents are still claiming that buyers could build “multi-residential, retirement, gated community, health and wellness precincts or a major home site for a high-net-worth private investor”. Residents are concerned that this means the LNP Council could approve significant tree-clearing if they come under pressure from big developers. 

Brisbane City Council should save this site by acquiring it using their Bushland Acquisition Fund. This is an amazing opportunity to protect the Sisters of Mercy site and create a new community hub. 

Please sign the petition to protect the Sisters of Mercy site and receive updates and information about other ways to get involved.

PETITION to the Lord Mayor, Cr Krista Adams (Chair of City Planning and Economic Development) and Cr Peter Matic (Paddington Ward).

Your petitioners request that the Brisbane City Council acquire this land using the Bushland Acquisition Fund. They ask that if the site is acquired, that it be used for a community purpose.

They also request that, if the Sisters of Mercy site is sold to private developers, the Brisbane City Council adheres strictly to the Mt Coot-tha Neighbourhood Plan and does not approve tree clearing on the site.
