Northern Beaches Council frequently receives requests from not-for-profit organisations to illuminate or project colours onto the façade of Manly Town Hall for the purpose of promoting a community message, cause, product, or service.

Council is committed to effectively managing these requests to meet community expectations while preserving the integrity of Manly Town Hall. To manage such requests, guidelines have been recently developed which will be used to assist staff in the consideration and approval of requests to illuminate the Manly Town Hall.

All requests to illuminate Manly Town Hall received from not-for-profit organisations are to be in writing and requests will be considered against the new guidelines.

The application process will be managed by the Place and Economic Development team who are available to discuss illumination requests with not-for profit organisations. Applications can be emailed directly to the Place team with final approval for illumination requests issued by the CEO.  

All approved requests are listed below and on the noticeboard located on the external wall of Manly Town Hall.

It is noted that requests for the illumination of Manly Town Hall may come from time to time from Government to promote special events or encourage tourism. These requests will be responded to positively while maintaining Council’s principles and guidelines.
