A message from Manningham Council

This week we have all welcomed new easing of COVID-19 restrictions which has seen many local businesses reopen, more opportunities to reconnect with friends and family and for some outdoor sport to resume.

We are now in the Third Step of the Victorian Government’s roadmap for reopening. This is a positive step that supports seated service for hospitality, reopening of retail and beauty/personal care services where a face covering can be worn.

There are no restrictions on reasons to leave your home and you can have up to two people from the same household visit you at your home. Remember you can only have one visit per day and must not travel more than 25km.

In Manningham, we’re excited to see more people out and about enjoying our community and supporting our local businesses – and we look forward to reopening our customer service centre next week.

Our front counter will reopen at the Civic Centre on Wednesday 4 November, please check our website or contact us for details. 

At the time of sending this email update, we are awaiting formal notification of the Council election results from the Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) and look forward to sharing as soon as possible.

A bright future for sport in Manningham

Local sport plays an important role in bringing the community together, which is increasingly significant as we re-open after the coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown.
