A message from Manningham Council

Thank you to everyone in our Manningham community over the past fortnight as we have all learnt to adapt to yet more new ways of doing things. Thank you for continuing to respond with flexibility, patience and resilience to this very challenging time and for your ongoing support for your neighbours and your community.

Last year we asked you to Imagine Manningham in 2040 and heard some great ideas for Council to work on in several priority areas over the long term. We’re now moving from imagining to planning. We recognise that the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic over the past few months may have changed priorities across our community and want to know what you think Council should focus on for the next four years.
