  1. Norfolk pines

    Hi Candy, A propos your note about Norfolk pines dropping their branches, I was at Forty Baskets this morning and just missed getting hit on the head by a falling pine cone. These cones are very big and solid and would do a lot of damage falling from a height. Children and families sitting at the picnic tables under the trees are particularly at risk. There were several nearby that had fallen to the ground. I feel people should be warned about the danger . Cheers, Jane Mundy

  2. expand Hop Skip Jump bus to North Balgowlah

    We have no bus service between North Balgowlah and Manly. Expanding the current loop to North Balgowlah would solve this.

    Council to audit existing footpaths and where no footpath exists on either side of the street, construct a footpath especially where there is a pedestrian safety issue. There are many streets in Balgowlah Heights where no footpath exists or only partial eg Vista Avenue to the south of Bareena Drive.and Cutler Road to mention just two examples

  6. Repurpose Manly Town Hall into Performing Arts Centre

    With the historic Manly Town Hall now surplus to requirements, I am working with the community to have this transformed into a performing arts centre with a flexible performing spacer (for theatre, concerts, live entertainment, dances), a 100 seat theatre and an 80 seat cinema. Do you support this idea? regards Candy Bingham

  8. Lost amenity at Little Manly Kiosk

    We, the Little Manly locals, used to have a roomy shelter at Little Manly Kiosk, with seating, to escape the sun or the rain when picnicking or swimming. Now we are locked out, reduced to a piece of concrete floor, as shown in the attached photo. And why? To save a commercial company Ripples the effort of stacking away the chairs and tables each day, as has been done for many years past. Why does the council allow this loss of amenity to locals, without providing an alternative?

  9. Hand dryers in Beachfront Public Toilets

    Hi Candy,
    Good luck in the upcoming Elections.
    I see you would like my vote in the Council Elections, and I wonder what your attitude is to reducing the spread of COVID and other infections during this Pandemic?
    As a retired Pharmacist, it has come to my attention that almost every public toilet on the beachfront in the Northern Beaches lacks hand drying facilities and consequently discourages people from washing their hands.
    I thought it might only be Manly where I live, but in talking to several of my friends from Palm Beach to Manly it appears that this is…

  11. More aesthetically pleasing bin storage in the market place precinct

    I love the market place area, the increased alfresco dining and pedestrian laneways but the large number rubbish bins in the precinct are a great point of detraction. Could we find a way to hide these smelly, ugly but necessary items from public view?

  12. Why no restore the promenade and swimming that was destroyed many years ago.

    I have been coming to Manly to swim and enjoy the area (both Harbourside and surf) since I was a very young boy in the ‘40’s and have particularly missed the promenade.

  14. Benchtop compost bins

    Some councils give these out free to rate payers. I have used one and found it reduced the garbage in my regular bin significantly. Many people live in units or small homes and have no room to have a compost heap or worm farm. Each household also gets a roll of compostible bags which are used to line the little compost bins and these are put into the green waste bin every few days.

  16. Tide marker at the Jump Rock

    In regards to the Jump Rock - yes, please remove the fence and try making it safer.
    Instead of your suggestion of requiring an app to check the tide, how about simply adding a red-amber-green "tide marker" sign and/or paint on the rock face, so that when the red shows (i.e. the red colour is not submerged) it's too shallow to jump, and if only the green is visible it is ok. Or something along those lines.

  17. Electric Buses in Manly

    Last week, the NSW transport minister announced his desire to electrify Sydney's bus fleet. (www.abc.net.au/news/2019-10-28/nsw-transport-minister-replace-buses-with-electric-fleet/11644694). This is a great idea because electric buses reduce local tailpipe pollution, local noise disturbance and greenhouse gas. What is Manly-Warringah doing to spearhead and facilitate this initiative given our unique exposure to climate change risk, need to protect our natural habitats and strong population growth. Given the benefits, the NBC should be pushing these common sense initiatives and leading Sydney for the benefit of its residents, not waiting for state government to decide.

    I write in regard to the future of the Manly Council Chambers building. I strongly suggest that the NBC undertake a search to locate the significant report and supporting documents prepared for Manly Council by Professor Lawrence Nield during my time at Manly Council (DTC, Town Clerk and General manager). This report, drawings and early considerations and recommendations seem to have been lost but it may possibly be located in the State Government Repository in western Sydney.

    Lawrence Nield was commissioned to assess and report on all council owned assets in and around the Manly business area Some of his…

  19. Theatre in the previous oceanworld manly

    Being a resident of Manly with a copule of properties I feel we should be considering the people who are more mature 50 plus paying council rates . Some people are less mobile than others we need to re open the movie theatre next to the 4 pines this would be beneficial for young and old and tourists we also need to make oceanworld into a live theatre comedies talk shows etc with a great wharf at the doorstep what better way to travel to Manly dinner and a theatre show people would stay the weekend even in winter months…

    Notice the nicest section off the corso is the part with cars .NOT because off the traffic but because off the central green planting.
