The city council is urging the local community around Manly to have their say on the Manly Harbour Village Precinct Project which aims to revitalise the neighbourhood shopping precinct on Cambridge Parade as well as a section of the Esplanade.
The project, which will cost $890,000, will improve the amenity, connection, and safety for residents and visitors to the centre whilst instilling a stronger community sense of place and pride. At the same time, the project aims to contribute to economic growth in the area.
Among the improvements included in the neighbourhood project are:
- Footpath upgrades to improve accessibility, areas of underutilised space and visual amenity
- Improving pedestrian safety and accessibility by upgrading existing crossing points
- Tree planting to improve visual and physical amenity while providing shade
- Groundcover plantings to new and existing garden beds
- Standard and unique street furniture
- Creating placemaking opportunities and delivering creative outcomes
Consultation via information kiosks on site has just been completed, but the local community can still provide feedback about the project through the online survey until midnight on Sunday, 20 September 2020.
The survey aims to know and understand what the local community think is important in their neighbourhood. The result of the consultation will influence the design concept which will be presented back to the community in the middle of November 2020.
Construction is planned to start in early 2021 and should be completed in mid-2021, depending on weather and site conditions.
