Manly public spaces in line for enhancements thanks to State Government grant
Almost $1 million has been allocated to improving public areas into user-friendly, safe spaces in a number of key areas of Northern Beaches Council, while still supporting social distancing requirements of COVID-19.
Council was awarded $975,000 in one-off grant funding from the State Government’s $15 million Streets as Shared Spaces program, which aims to support social distancing during COVID-19, promote the health of local economies and increase greener public spaces.
$875, 000 will go to improve connections around the Manly town centre and Bilgola, while the remaining $100,000 will go to enhancing public space and movement in Tania Park, Dee Why, Mona Vale and Newport.
Council will consult further with the community prior to embarking on any work on these projects.
