Brickbats to Council which has still not replaced the Little Manly pool handrail. As well the sandstone capping next to the kiosk there is falling to bits.
Bouquets to the Federal Government which announced it had halted plans to allow commercial leases over 35 years on Sydney Harbour Federation Trust land. This is a win for the community, and we look forward to the revitalisation of the area with some new leases.
Brickbats to Council and the Traffic Management Committee for the over-the-top pedestrian refuge at Cliff St and Darley Rd. Trucks turning left into Cliff St from Darley Rd have already damaged the new curb.
Bouquets to St Matthews Church which has opened the doors of the new Darley Smith Building. It will be a huge addition to Manly’s social scene and is likely to be the site for a mini movie festival using the smart new auditorium (pictured) and community spaces.
Bouquets to Council for the two raised pedestrian crossings in East Esplanade
