Northern Beaches Council’s Community Development Team has received Safer Communities grant funding from the Federal Attorney General’s Department for the ‘More to Manly Safer Laneways’ Project.

This project intends to improve safety in several laneway locations in Manly. The laneway spaces will also be activated with unique street art murals to create welcoming laneway spaces that will encourage use and help improve feelings of safety in this area.
