Message from our Mayor

At Manningham, we are passionate about community engagement, so we were delighted to authorise our new community engagement policy at our recent Council meeting.

This policy provides guidance to our new community panel, which will come together this month. The panel will develop recommendations that will help shape our community’s future and guide our strategic documents: Council Plan, Community Vision, Asset Plan and Financial Plan. 

At the last Council meeting we also endorsed a range of additional COVID relief funding measures. These include our new business grant program and rent relief for some sporting clubs based on their financial hardship. If your business would like to apply for a grant, details are available on our website.
