  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. Western Harbour Tunnel and Beaches Link

    Local residents have an opportunity to attend a meeting on the proposed Western Harbour Tunnel & Beaches Link on this Saturday 17 June.

    I support the tunnel for the benefit of all Northern Beaches residents, but feel concerned that an exhaust chimney could possibly be located in the Seaforth area.

    There may be technologies available to treat the exhausts and if so our community need to be assured that the very best treatments will be applied. Does this issue concern other residents?

    (The RMS meeting is from 10am to 2pm at the Seaforth Community Centre, Baringa Ave, Seaforth).

  5. RESTRICTED PARKING IN WEST STREET

    Finding a parking space along West Street between White Street and Sydney Road is a real pain in the neck.

    I suppose I coul be wrong but I think it's mostly weekday commuters causing the issue.

    Can the council address this issue by restricting parking in some way?

    Thank you.

  6. Trial artificial turf on E. Esplanade

    It seems like the grass is always struggling on E. Esplanade, aka "The Office", probably because of it's popularity, the big trees, and salt/sand from the winter Southerlies. Maybe council can trial some artificial turf which might save some $$ in the long run? Or is turf hard to maintain? Maybe turf in a few high-wear areas (directly under the middle trees or directly in front of the benches close to the promenade).

    I'm sure there will be plenty of detractors (takes away from the natural beauty, etc.)...but just a thought.

  7. Affordable housing: Affordable for whom?

    Between the idea and the reality, between the policy and the developer falls... the failings of the previous Labour government? Developers of boarding houses love to cut and past from AHSEPP when submitting DAs, specifically that boarding houses are for, amongst others, key workers like our teachers, nurses, and police officers who cannot otherwise afford to live in the communities they service. A worthy sentiment--the 'idea'--we should all support. But what of the reality? Who lives in these developments really? Maximum tariffs only apply to developments seeking land tax exemption. In 2013 that was $368 for a double and $261…

  9. Hello Candy, NBC and Manly Residents. I write in regard to the future of the Manly Council Chambers building and would like Council to locat

    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…
