Brickbat to Council for removing not one but nine car parking spots on West Esplanade above the Manly Art Gallery and Museum. The community requests Council consider reducing the size of the Tourist bus zone and change the times to daytime use and permitting car parking from 6pm to 8am.
Bouquet to Council contractor for the nearly complete works at LM beach, despite the wind, rain and other unplanned events that have caused delays the digger and fences should disappear at the end of November.
Bouquet to Council for placing a Stopwork order on the unit block opposite LM Beach. The developer/owner apparently removed the roof and commenced installing an additional floor on the building without submitting a DA and subsequently getting an approval.
Bouquet to Council for removing the redundant fencing and ripped screen from around the fig tree on East Esplanade Park.
Bouquet to Council for installing the flashing roadside sign that monitors and warns trucks to reduce speed on Darley Rd at the corner of Addison Rd. We look forward to the outcomes of the traffic study on the Eastern Hill early next year.
Brickbat to Council for promising and not delivering the signage review outcomes. There are so many empty, old and redundant Manly Council signs around the area. Send a photo to Council to remind them to fix or change it.
Bouquet to Australia Post for finally commencing the fit-out for a new Post Office on Raglan St, Manly. We look forward to the Christmas queues at this new location.
Brickbat to the local hedge trimmers who are failing to trim the overhanging hedges back to the property boundary. So many hedges now taking up footpath space.
