Help Shape the Future Design of Manly Life Saving Club

One of Australia’s most iconic beaches is set to get a facelift with a new life saving club, and Council’s looking for community input to help shape the future design of Manly Life Saving Club.

Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan said we’re starting with a clean slate and are looking to the community for their comments and ideas, so they can be included for consideration during the concept design process.

“Doing a project of this scale is a lengthy process, in which the community and key stakeholders will be consulted throughout the project.

Part of this process is putting together a community working group, who’ll share their knowledge and insight so we really understand what they want.

“This is a much loved facility positioned on stunning Manly beach so a complete rebuild has been a long time in the making and we want to get it right.

“Council is committed to developing a concept design that delivers an excellent outcome for the area, by providing a valuable community asset that will not only support lifesaving activities, but also provide community spaces.

“I really encourage everyone to comment on this amazing site, but particularly those who use it regularly or are members.” Mayor Regan said.

At last month’s Council meeting it was agreed to provide in principle support for the rebuild of the surf club and staff were asked to establish a community working group to work with Council and the Club.

It also asked that provision be made in the 2019/20 budget to kick off the project design, and that a business case be brought back to Council.

The first stage of community engagement will commence on 16 November 2018.  Community members are invited to drop-in to one of our sessions at the Manly Life Saving Club and share their thoughts with the project team.

Details are as follows:

Wednesday 21 November from 6.30 – 8.30am

Wednesday 28 November from 5-7pm

Saturday 8 December from 8-10am

In addition to the drop-in sessions, if you’re interested in being part of the working group, express your interest online by visiting the website.

Working Group Expressions of Interest and comments close on 16 December 2018.

Council is also progressing with upgrades to Mona Vale SLSC and Long Reef SLSC thanks to funds made available under the NSW Government’s Stronger Communities Fund.
