Working group appointed

Manly Place Plan - coming soon

A place plan aims to create enjoyable, vibrant, safe, inclusive, and sustainable places for people.

The My Place: Manly Place Plan will offer a clear vision and guide future planning in the Manly Strategic Centre with a focus on the community's connection to place, building on knowledge and priorities outlined in a number of our existing planning studies and strategic documents.

The draft place plan will be developed over the next six months and be publicly exhibited by early 2022. We will also complete a Night Time Economy Study for Manly as part of this process.

Project working group

A Project Working Group (PWG) has been formed to ensure that the views of residents and key stakeholder groups are heard and considered as we develop the place plan.

The PWG will provide a forum for discussions between Council, our consultants and 15 representatives including residents, businesses, associations and representative bodies, and other special interest groups.

The Terms of Reference are available to read here.

An inception meeting, will be held in early August 2021 and we expect the group to meet on at least three (3) occasions over the next 12 months.

An Expression of Interest process was open from Wednesday 5 May until Sunday 30 May 2021.

If you miss out on a chance to be a part of the PWG, there will be other opportunities for you to get involved throughout the development of the place plan, so click +Follow above to stay up to date.
