Northern Beaches Council’s budget for the next financial year will deliver on our community’s vision, balancing high quality services with investments in key projects and infrastructure.

The focus is on supporting the things that make the Northern Beaches an extraordinary place to live.

It includes a total expenditure of more than $439 million including a capital works program of over $111million.

The budget for footpaths will double to $3million, bringing the total investment in new pathways to more than $22.5million for the financial year.

We are progressing the spectacular 36km Manly to Palm Beach Coast Walk – an incredible natural and cultural asset for locals and visitors alike. We will complete the Church Point precinct project and undertake upgrades to Beacon Hill Community Centre and Youth Club and some of our childcare centres.

We will also upgrade roads, cycleways, sportsfields and playgrounds right across the area and improving the streetscapes in many of our town centres. We’ll be introducing a new waste service across the whole Northern Beaches in mid-2019.

And we'll continue to deliver our extensive range of great services - from libraries to childcare, aquatic centres, art and theatre and sustainability initiatives.

This is a budget which services our community now and addresses the needs of our future residents.
