  1. Harbour Pool near Manly Wharf

    An Idea:
    Manly Council is currently looking at changing the netting structure at the harbour pool near Manly Wharf in an endeavour to provide a better habitat for the colony of seahorses that reside there. Could this pool be upgraded to a proper baths-style pool, with a timber perimeter walkway providing ladder-access to the water? (Have you seen the pool/baths at Balmoral for example)
    This would have greater appeal to families providing a fun place to swim and a more memorable experience than the current 'temporary' netted pool enclosure.

  2. Speed Humps at North Head

    North Head is a popular place to cycle - except for the speed humps which are a real hazard!
    Why can't we make the humps 'cycle friendly' and let's encourage more people to use their bikes in this wonderful area?

  3. Manly's 2015 Plan

    am very concerned regarding Manly Council's 2015 development proposal and when I speak with people, no-one seems to know anything about it.... I am extremely concerned with Ms Hay's proposal to demolish the Whistler street car park, library etc. and replace it with MORE units under the guise of making Manly more pedestrian friendly.

    Additionally, their proposal to put an underground carpark under Manly oval seems an awful idea to me. I have reviewed their proposal but it doesn't state how cars will enter and exit. Will the cars exit and zoom up Raglan Street?

    If you could please start…

  4. Community Gardens

    The community garden at 100 Griffith Street, Balgowlah has proven a great success http://www.balgowlahcg.com and while many people in suburbs like Seaforth and Balgowlah Hts already have a garden, there are thousands of unit dwellers in our area who don't.

    Do you think Manly Council should encourage more community gardens? Would you be interested in participating in one?

  6. Can we have more bins on the beach

    I would be a good idea to have more bins on the beach or by the beach to prevent the heaps of litter left behind by visitors and locals.

  7. Trees on the East Esplanade Reserve

    Background – Compared to West Esplanade the trees on East Esplanade Reserve are looking very tired right from the Wharf to the Manly Cove Motor Yacht Club shed. Many Norfolk Island Pines are missing, dying or dead. There are also several Cook Island Pines that are very dense and twisted and spoil the views. The large Morton Bay Fig at the bottom of Osbourne Road is mature and the Port Jackson Fig between it and the Motor Yacht Club is very decayed.

    Proposal – About fourteen new Norfolk Island Pines should be planted on the East Esplanade between Wentworth and…
