The Manly Place Plan consultation will continue at a meeting in March. We will update the community on any progress next month. No-one is quite sure of any outcomes from the consultations thus far, but a report will be submitted to Council and then be put on public exhibition for the community at large to comment.
In the meantime the Northern Beaches Property Management Framework is on exhibition with submissions closing on 30 March 2022. This framework is the ‘harmonisation’ of the various property management policies from the three former councils.
Northern Beaches Council owns and manages, directly or via licences or leases, a wide variety of property that serves a range of community, administrative and commercial uses. There are 542 buildings and 2,900 land parcels, including surf and other sporting clubs, community centres, parks, car parks, public reserves, vacant land parcels, buildings on Council land and Crown land under the management of Council.
If you belong to an organisation that uses a Council building or property asset, or would like to use or access some form of Council property, check the Council Your Say page and comment. This framework will provide the policy guidance necessary for the repurposing of Manly Town Hall.
